Named for the largest national park in the Canadian Rockies, Jasper is one of four new animals at Wild Wonders Outdoor Theater, which presented twice daily live-animal shows during the summer.

Wild Wonders Outdoor Theater staff members also feature animals in Close Encounters around the zoo and in the community as part of year-round educational programming. Jasper is part of the Species Survival PlanĀ® for Canada lynx, which are listed as endangered in Washington state.

He is now being hand-reared by zoo staff.
