Amazon Animal Selfie Stations

We invite you to visit the Magnetic Hill Zoo's Amazon species. During your visit, be sure to stop by the "Year of the Amazon" selfie station to snap and share a great photo, and show your support for these important Amazonian species. #zooMHzoo #MagneticHillZoo #MonctonZoo #AmazonAnimals #HelpAmazon

For the 2020 Year of the Amazon theme, we have chosen to support the WildTrack ConservationFIT program.

The ConservationFIT program collects animal footprints to learn where endangered species are located and how best to help them. Their Footprint Identification Technique was developed by observing indigenous trackers in Africa and developing statistical algorithms from images of footprints. This technique can identify the species, individual, sex, and age-class of an animal.

The Magnetic Hill Zoo's Animal Care team is a contributing partner by collecting and submitting footprints of our jaguars!

A donation bin has been installed at the Year of the Amazon animal selfie station. All funds raised via these donation bins will be given to the WildTrack ConservationFIT program.
