WEST-assiniboine-park-zoo-Sept4

The new “Journey to Churchill” exhibit is now open at the Assiniboine Park Zoo in Manitoba, setting a new world standard for Arctic zoo shows.

The sprawling 10-acre permanent exhibit showcases Northern Manitoba, allowing visitors to connect with arctic species and landscapes in three distinct zones, including a boreal forest-like Wapusk Lowlands and Churchill Coast, offering a re-creation of the famous northern Manitoba town.

But Gateway to the Arctic’s showcase piece is the Sea Ice Passage, an underwater viewing tunnel for watching polar bears and ringed seals frolic in separate pools. Also on show are snowy owls, caribou, musk ox and arctic fox.
