Capybara Baby Registry & Naming Contest

To celebrate the birth of baby capybaras at High Park Zoo, you can help show the 'capy babies' and the Zoo some love by contributing to their Baby Registry. The three energetic capybaras were born to famed capybara couple Bonnie and Clyde.

The High Park Zoo is a popular year-round destination that has been a highlight for visitors to High Park since 1893. The Zoo is free to the public and attracts over 720,000 visitors each year. Your donations will support the new capybara family and the entire community of animals at the Zoo. 

Your donation will:

  • Provide opportunities for Torontonians and visitors to interact with animals like the capybara in a unique, park setting
  • Support the ongoing funding of High Park Zoo, and help ensure that the Zoo’s nine animal paddocks remain in good repair.
  • Help leverage funding from generous family foundations like the Honey Family and the Griggs Family Foundations
Capybara Pup Naming Contest!

Help name the three Capybara pups by visiting the High Park Zoo website and scrolling down to submit your names!  Submitted names will be added to the “long list.” From this list, the Friends of High Park Zoo will create a short list. Then you’ll be invited to vote on your favourites. The long-list deadline is May 3. Voting on the short list will start May 8.
