Montreal Biodome (Biodome de Montreal)
While there is much to learn about as well as flora and fauna to see in these four ecosystems, there are a few highlights of a visit to the Montreal Biodome. You’ll see king penguins in the Sub-Antarctic Islands, adorable puffins in the Labrador Coast, beautiful lynx of the Laurentian Maple Forest, and about 20 fish species in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Probably the most interesting eco-system in terms of animals is the Tropical Rainforest, where you’ll find monkeys, parrots, capybaras, two-toed sloths, anacondas, yacare caimans and many others. Along with seeing wildlife, you’ll learn about environmental issues impacting these ecosystems.
You also have the option to visit their Botanical Gardens, featuring 75 hectares (185 acres) with 10 greenhouses and 35 themed gardens. Some of these include the Chinese Garden, First Nations Garden, Japanese Garden, Alpine Garden, and Courtyard of the Senses.
