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 has a way for animal lovers of all ages to stay connected and virtually visit the popular attraction. Zoo to You: Virtual Safari will be updated daily with new animal videos, wildlife-themed activities and other ideas that individuals and families can do at home.
Live Streams and DZTV Videos
The Zoo will feature a new animal and area of the Zoo every day at 1 p.m. on Facebook Live. This will give viewers a chance to interact directly with animal care staff.
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
Anyone can become a citizen scientist from the comfort of their home 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.
