Temporary Relocation of Birds at the Zoo

The Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park & Zoo is taking steps to protect all our birds against Avian Influenza. In consultation with our veterinarians, the Zoo has decided to relocate all bird species at the Zoo to a secure facility. This means visitors to the zoo will not be able to see some of their favourite birds including:

  • Bald Eagles
  • Snowy Owls
  • Barn Owl
  • Great Horned Owl
  • Red-tail Hawk

Highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) is transmitted by migratory birds and has recently been confirmed in wild birds in Canada. The Zoo will continue to monitor the situation and consult with our veterinary team regarding the health and safety of our birds. The Zoo is equipped with appropriate facilities to house the birds until it is safe for them to return to their exhibits.
