Zoo Mobile

This program is currently unavailable due to COVID-19 restrictions.

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.

Program Topics:

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.
~ An indoors presentation area is required, not in a cafeteria
~ 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.
