HOW TO OBSERVE

There’s more than one way to explore your zoo or aquarium.

  • Many zoos offer passes that are good at other wildlife parks and aquariums across the country.
  • Learn about vanishing habitat and conservation while visiting the wildlife parks.
  • Check out their rehabilitation programs and learn how zoologist and veterinarians help injured animals return to the wild.
  • Sponsor one of your favorite creatures! Many programs offer a way to help support the wildlife we enjoy most, especially those that are endangered.
  • Speaking of endangered species, learn about reduced populations and find out which ones are making comebacks.
  • Which zoos have nurseries? Several wildlife programs pair up to create conservative breeding programs to help create a sustainable population. Ask if your zoo participates in Species Survival Plans.
