What do you know about sharks?

Victims of many prejudices and often, the unwitting stars of scary suspense movies, sharks are the great lords of the world’s oceans and seas. However, far from being the bloodthirsty predators depicted through Hollywood film scripts, they, in fact, have much more to fear than any human: Almost 100 million sharks are killed every year, that’s 11,000 per day! 

But how can we distinguish facts from fiction? The facts show that sharks are extraordinary predators and have adapted extremely well to their environment for over 400 million years now. Contrary to popular belief, the great majority (80%) of the species, never reach more than 2 metres in length. Of the approximate 450 different species identified today, only a dozen have been found to be potentially dangerous for humans.

Sharks are essential to the health and balance of our oceans; without them, complete ecosystems could crumble, thus irreversibly changing the fragile balance which exists between predators and prey. Most sharks are vulnerable to over exploitation because they grow very slowly, attaining their maturity late and therefore having a low birthrate.

A more in-depth knowledge of their ecological role as well as a heightened awareness of their present condition constitute different tools, which, we hope, will protect and preserve these marvels of evolution.


I had an amazing time here with my family! My kids absolutely loved it. Amazing experience :)

It's the 3rd year in a row that my family and I visit this Zoo. Even though it was during the busiest day they had this year, we were able to visit everything and fully enjoy the experience. Don't forget to bring your bathing suit cause they have an amazing wave pool!

Amazing place to take the family! Lots of animals to see, amazing water park and fun rides. Great packages available with hotels close by for out of town visitors. Highly recommend!

First time visiting here on our annual summer week in Québec. We went for the 2 day family pass, and had an amazing time. The 2 days allowed us to take our time around the park, and gave plenty of time as well for cooling off at the Amazoo. We'll definitely come back!

A good place for family outing with zoo, water park and rides all at one place. All the attractions are conveniently placed very close to each other. Food court is good too and you can also bring in your lunch.

We love going to the zoo. (…) Most of the animals were out and the grandkids were thrilled. I'd never been to the Dinozoo before and I thought it was pretty cool especially with the movement and sounds. The design is great in that it's seperated and all goes back to the center.

What a great time. Would definitely go again. The zoo care takers are amazing at what they do and so friendly. I would recommend if you have never gone it's a bucket list. Oh and don't forget to go and pet the sting rays.

We had an excellent time! We have not been in over 10 years and are so glad we went! The park is clean. The food was well priced for a theme park. We loved the Dinozoo! We have terrible French speaking abilities but appreciated your courteous and friendly staff, we felt welcome!

Our family absolutely enjoyed our day! There was so much to do! Park was very clean and staff was very friendly and helpful with any questions!!! We plan on going next year and making it a weekend trip so that we can enjoy the whole park!
