Take Your Kids On A Virtual Tour Of The Denver Zoo

Mar 25, 2020, 11:40 AM

Even though the Denver Zoo is closed for the time being to guests, you can still take your kids on a virtual tour from your living room or office! Below is all the information you need from our friends at the Zoo.

 

Denver Zoo may not be open to guests, but its animal care team is still busy at work caring for its nearly 3,000 animals. And now the Zoo is reaching out to the community with a new resource to help families stay connected to its animals and stave off cabin fever during this difficult time. Zoo to You: Virtual Safari will be updated daily with new animal videos, wildlife-themed activities and other ideas that families can do at home. Highlights include:

  • Live Streams and DZTV Videos: The Zoo will feature a new animal and area of the Zoo every day at 1 p.m. MST on Facebook Live, which will give viewers a chance to interact directly with animal care staff. There will also be new animal videos posted across the Zoo’s social channels—FacebookTwitterInstagram and YouTube—and Zoo to You: Virtual Safari throughout the week.
  • Daily Family Activity Ideas: The Zoo’s Learning Experiences team will share daily nature play and wildlife-themed activities to help parents keep their kids busy, entertained and engaged during school closures, from Giraffe Yoga to 25 Nature Play Ideas.
  • Conservation from Home: Families can become citizen scientists from the comfort of their homes by taking part in the Zoo’s Colorado Corridors Project and play a meaningful role in helping save wildlife. Users can identify local wildlife in photos captured by remote cameras along I-70 then visit Zooniverse to participate in other conservation projects around the world.

Visitors to Zoo to You: Virtual Safari are also encouraged to make a donation to the Zoo’s Emergency Support Fund during its closure to help cover the costs of caring for its nearly 3,000 animals. For more information visit DenverZoo.org and DenverZoo.org/ZootoYou.
