Let the Zoo come to you!
Enjoy a live animal presentation at your facility. Meet 3-4 live animals up close and learn more about them as we discuss their importance on our planet. (Only 1 animal is brought for the Zoo Career program.) These programs are designed to sharpen students’ sensory and observation skills using touchable animals.
Zoo Mobiles are strictly indoor programs.
Creature Features focuses on a variety of animals and what makes each of them so special.
Reptiles looks closely at these scaled animals, what makes them stand out and why they are so important to a balanced ecosystem.
Texas Animals examines some of the great animals that live here in the state of Texas.
Zoo Career Days are available and are limited to 2 hours. This program is designed to include 1 live animal, bio facts and “tools of the trade.”

Our main concern is the welfare of our animals, and we need to ask your support in the following:
~ Zoo animals must not be near or mixed with other animals (cannot be in the same room with classroom pets)
~ There must be a 3–foot area around the presenter where the public/class is not permitted.
~ A table and two chairs are needed for the presenters.
~ A contact person who can assist the presenters in keeping individuals away from the animal preparation area and be responsible for the conduct of the group.
~ The presenter will need a parking space close to the presentation site.
~ Presenters have the authority to cancel the program if they feel the animals’ welfare is in jeopardy.
