The BC Wildlife Park has temporary closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The decision to close came after park staff had already closed its indoor galleries, reduced its café to take-out-only options and eliminated many services that gathered people, including feed talks and animal encounters.
However, as the non-profit organization receives little funding and relies heavily on donations and park admissions — and with people being urged to stay home — the decision to temporarily close was made.
The park’s animal-care team will continue looking after the animals and its health centre remains open to accepting wildlife. Those wishing to bring wildlife to the park in Dallas must first call 250-573-3242 ext 230 (250-319-1129 in an emergency ) to arrange a time.
The annual Easter Eggcitement event has been postponed.
