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.
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.

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.
~ Zoo Mobiles are indoor programs only.
