Student Inquiries and Assignments
Teachers please note: We are happy to support student inquiries into animals, animal care, conservation, sustainability and other related topics to the best of our ability. Please be aware when making assignments that involve contacting the zoo that our staff is unable to respond in person or by telephone to interview requests. Students may send 3-5 questions via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Due to the large number of requests, we aim, but cannot guarantee, to answer inquiries within 10 business days. We are also unable to accommodate shadowing requests, but you may refer students to our Keeper Experience program.
