It's calledParc Omega and it's located in Montebello, Quebec.

The PhotographerShawn Bennet A.k.a. @yukon_jak headed up there to snap some photos, and he created a photo album of all the amazing creatures you can meet in the park.

There are 15 species of animals spread out across several different environments, including a forest, a meadow, a mountain, lakes and the boreal region.

But don't be afraid, Parc Omega encourages people to make a first contact with the animals.

So you won't just be admiring the animals, you'll be interacting with them as well.
