Enjoy a virtual visit to the San Diego Zoo with one of our world-famous animal ambassadors and a San Diego Zoo wildlife expert!
Our new Virtual Education Programs take place online only, via Zoom or your chosen web conference platform. They are designed for school groups, grades K–12; youth groups, such as scouts, YMCA, Boys & Girls Clubs, etc.; or adult learner groups, such as Road Scholars/Elderhostel or specialized residential homes. Corporate groups should contact the Event Sales team for more information about programs designed for their specific audiences.
A device with internet access is required for this program. A webcam and microphone are also recommended. Teachers/Education Group Leaders will work with the Education Department Reservation Team to secure a confirmation email, and set up a link and instructions to access the online program on their designated date and time. Groups of various sizes can be accommodated, but for the best and most interactive experience, we strongly encourage groups to limit their audience size to 33 or fewer people.
During each of these very special virtual visits, you will have a chance to meet an animal up close and talk with a wildlife care expert, who can answer all your questions!
To book one of these programs, contact the Education Reservation Team at 619-557-3963 or email EducationZoo@sdzwa.org.
San Diego County K-12 public and charter school teachers can apply for program funding, provided by ArtsBusXpress, a nonprofit organization that connects students with arts and science opportunities. Once you submit, ArtsBusXpress will review your application. Subject to approval, ArtsBusXpress will notify both of us, and we'll be in touch to personalize the session for your class and secure a specific time.
