Zoomobile Programs

Let us bring the Zoo to you! Through interactive educational presentations and live “animals interviews,” the Zoomobile carries a message of compassion for all living things along with a greater understanding of our wonder-filled planet. 

For the safety of staff and participants, we are not currently able to provide in person programs at the zoo or at your site. However, we are excited to offer our all NEW one-of-a-kind virtual animal encounters! Let us bring the Zoo to you with a Virtual Zoomobile program which includes interaction with a Zoo educator and 3 live "animal interviews" with our ambassador animals and are designed to support your students' learning. Or discover our new Virtual Storytime which includes a story followed by a meet and greet with an animal ambassador. Choose from five stories!
