Calgary Zoo directors toured the island Sunday to survey the damage brought on by widespread flooding in Calgary.

As recovery work began and waters receded, zoo employees could be seen in boats touring the facility, while firefighters and other workers started on cleanup.

Emergency plans were implemented at the zoo after Calgary was swamped by floodwaters that submerged much of the lower bowl of the Saddledome hockey arena, displaced tens of thousands of people and forced the evacuation of the downtown core.

The deaths of one peacock and tropical fish were reported on Sunday, while other animals appeared to be doing fine.

Here's a look at the zoo after the flood:
