How Do Virtual Zoo Classes Work?

  • Zoo staff and students meet in a video chat session.
  • Connection is easy.  Learners at home only need a computer or mobile device, audio and internet connection or cellular service. (a webcam and microphone are optional)
  • Programs will be delivered through a secure platform. Zoo staff will deliver a live program and will answer questions from our virtual participants! Students may meet animal care staff, get unique views of our animals, participate in engaging activities and more. 
  • Zoom links will be sent 24-hours or less prior to program start time. Please check your spam or junk folders for this email.

We’ll also learn how we can spring into action each and every day to help protect amazing animals and habitats all over the world!
