The Toronto Zoo and its union have reached an agreement on a temporary reduction in wages and hours for all permanent staff to avoid further layoffs.
The agreement takes effect on Saturday and is in place until June 6th, when it will be re-evaluated.
Ticket sales are a critical part of the zoo’s revenues, and it’s been closed to the public since March 13th due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are grateful for the outpouring of support as we continue to care for our 5,000 animals. Here are a few ways you can support the Zoo until we reopen:
Purchase a Zoo Membership
Purchase a Zoovenir
Donate to @TZWConservancy
