Virtual Programs

Live Video Chats

  • A Zoo Educator will greet your students and introduce them to live Animal Ambassadors. Choose from two different program lengths to meet your needs:

Zoo to You Meet & Greet ($50): Meet two live animals during a 20 to 25 minute session. Select two Animal Ambassadors to be the focus our session. Our Zoo Educator will introduce your students to the animals and share a variety of fun facts, including information on the species’s natural habitat and adaptations, along with information about the individual animals and their personalities. Teachers and/or students may compile a list of questions ahead of time for us to answer, or we’re happy to provide a more conversational experience based on your preferences. Animal options include a variety of lizards, snakes, turtle/tortoise, cockroaches, frogs, and more; a full list of species will be provided with the reservation form

Zoo to You Virtual Class ($100): For teachers looking for a longer, more in-depth experience, choose one of our standard field trip Zoo Class programs to enjoy virtually. During a Virtual Class, students will meet four Animal Ambassadors and have opportunities to ask questions. These programs will be more focused on a specific topic, such as: habitats, adaptations, classification, or conservation. Many of our Zoo Classes can help you meet or reinforce state education standards. For a complete list of Zoo Class options, visit: https://newzoo.org/education/classes-tours
