Looking to take a trip to the zoo without leaving your couch? Fortunately for you, one zoo in NYC is ready to use the power of technology to get you up close and personal with some of its most celebrated animals!
Join New York Adventure Club for a virtual trip to Staten Island Zoo — known as the biggest “little” zoo in America, the Staten Island Zoo contains more than 1,100 animals, and over 350 species of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and invertebrates from six of the world’s seven continents.
Led by the zoo’s education department staff, our exclusive live stream with the Staten Island Zoo will include:
- An introduction to the Staten Island Zoo and what makes it stand out amongst other zoos throughout the world
- A digital meet & greet with 6 animal guests, ranging from small mammals to reptiles
- An educational overview of each animal, including the story of how each one arrived at the zoo
- A Q&A with zookeepers during, and after, the animal showcases
No virtual visit is ever the same.
