Toronto Zoo’s Easter “Egg”-Stravaganza

The Toronto Zoo held it’s 21st Annual Easter “Egg”-Stravaganza during the Easter long weekend from April 2 to April 5. The event featured a visit from the Easter bunny along with Easter treats for children participating in the zoo’s passport activity program.

Special exhibits were decorated with Easter eggs created by volunteers and students. The environmentally and health-friendly papier-mâché eggs were made of brown paper bag, whole wheat flour, water, non-toxic paint and were stuffed with nutritious treats to provide enrichment for the animals.

Animal feedings and zoo talks enhanced the event. Special displays included polar bears in the new Tundra Trek and Nassir, the zoo’s newest addition to the gorilla family.
