Below you’ll find several zoos offering special videos and programs while we’re all at home. We’ll continue to add to this list:)
We may not be able to welcome you to the Zoo and Aquarium right now, but we are using our social media channels to #BringTheZooToYou.
From virtual visits and chats with staff, to showing what the animals are up to and posting activity ideas from our education and conservation teams… we want to use this time to continue to engage, educate, inspire – and ultimately, bring a smile to your face.
