Skunk and Ducklings: Lost Lagoon, Stanley Park

It may be Mother's Day for us humans this weekend, but in the Lost Lagoon there are lots of new mothers as Mallard ducklings and Wood Duck chicks have emerged from their eggshells and have begun to explore their new world! As well, Skunks, Raccoons and Squirrels are out foraging for food. The Lost Lagoon is an ideal destination to check out to see some of its amazing creatures! This weekend is the perfect time to come visit Stanley Park, Vancouver!

A brand new addition to Stanley Park today were these two adorable Wood Duck chicks which haven't been spotted in the Lagoon for the last few years and have made a new home for themselves.
