Kinsmen Bear Exhibit
If you catch them on the right day, you may see grizzly bears Koda and Mistaya wrestling, digging or playing in their pond at the Kinsmen Bear Exhibit. The enclosure has been home to the pair since 2008. These massive mammals are a species at risk, and their home at the Zoo is thanks to the Kinsmen Club of Saskatoon.
Mistaya is the sole surviving cub from Bear 66 who died in Banff National Park in 2005. He stayed in the wild until it became clear that he could not survive without intervention. Koda was an orphaned cub from the Jasper area who was rescued and nurtured by zookeepers at the Edmonton Valley Zoo. The cubs were paired at the Calgary Zoo and later transferred to their permanent home in Saskatoon.
Kinsmen Children's Zoo
You never know what Goeldi's monkeys might be up to, but it is usually something pretty entertaining! The Kinsmen’s Children’s Zoo is also home to pygmy goats, seba bats and more. This exhibit gives visitors an up-close look at a variety of small animals and is a big hit with visitors young and old.
