MAGNETIC HILL ZOO: RETIRED WILDLIFE REFUGE STILL A FAVOURITE SPOT FOR MANY WILDLIFE SPECIES IN MONCTON

It began as a wildlife refuge and rehabilitation centre in Moncton in the 1970s, and Magnetic Hill Zoo still has returning wildlife that call the grounds home. Grackles, Robins, Sparrows and Mallard Ducks come and go freely for the public to feed at the duck pond. Red Squirrels are often seen on the deck and picnic areas and raccoon paw prints can be found in the daylight hours, telling the tale of that night’s activities.
