Animal Ambassador Program

As we all learn together how to move forward safely in light of the  COVID-19 pandemic, our animal care teams are still hard at work ensuring our animals – from the turtles, to the spiders, to our porcupine – continue to receive the highest level of care.


Given the current, rapidly-evolving situation, our need for your support has never been greater. You can help by making a generous tax-receiptable gift to Science North’s Adopt an Animal Ambassador program today!


By symbolically adopting one of our animal ambassadors, you will help support the care, feeding, and enrichment programming of Northern Ontario wildlife at Science North.

There are many different levels of adoption available, and great perks for each one. We invite you to adopt an animal ambassador today, or consider giving an adoption as a gift that is sure to please.
