Experience the zoo from the comfort of your classroom.
Want to meet our gorillas and learn what their typical day looks like? Or the importance of their habitat and what you and your students can do to help this species in the wild? Find out this and more as your class interacts with one of our zoo educators. To start the conversation and initiate inquiry, footage of gorillas in their natural habitat and information on the species will be available to you prior to your program. Your students can send their questions to our educators ahead of time so we can prepare and support your students learning objectives, making the most out of their Skype visit. (Can be used to support the reading of The One and Only Ivan)

Giraffe legs can pack a real punch. Full-grown giraffes can kick hard enough to break a lion’s skull or spine.
