“The holiday season is a great time of year for families to visit the zoo,” said the Assiniboine Park Conservancy’s Laura Cabak.

“Children can come to meet Santa and spend the day exploring the zoo and seeing all the animals that thrive in northern climates, like polar bears, snow leopards and wolves.”
