Zoom the Zoo - Virtual Zoo Tour

Visit Sunset Zoo virtually with the help of a trained education staff member and Zoom.  During each Zoom the Zoo program, participants will follow along with an animated Zoo map to see animals from Sunset Zoo in their habitats while Sunset Zoo staff shares unique information related to the animals being viewed.  If there is something specific you want our staff to highlight, like animal adaptations, animal diets, or some other topic, let us know and we can accommodate most requests.

Technology Requirements

Sunset Zoo's virtual programs provide an enhanced educational experience. Unlike watching a video online, audience members can interact in real-time with the presenter creating a rich learning environment similar to an in-person experience. Sunset Zoo uses Zoom, a web-based video conferencing solution.  This allows Sunset Zoo to connect to any group/person with a webcam.  Sunset Zoo will email you a link for the connection once confirmed.  Zoom operates in the background allowing most computers and other devices to bypass most firewall systems.
