Zoo Explorers - Ages 8-10
Biomes and Habitats 
Around the World 

Call 936-333-8616 to be put on the waiting list. 

Our world is beautiful and diverse, with each part of the planet a little different from the rest.  The animals who live in these environments are perfectly at home there, but what keeps them from living somewhere else?  Why don't camels live in the jungle?  And why aren't there bears in the desert?


Students 8-10 will discover the wide variety of biomes and habitats that cover our planet.  Grasslands, tundra, deserts, rainforests, wetlands, coral reefs, scrubland, and mountains all host completely different communities of plants and animals. Each community works together to maintain their cycle of life. To protect them, we need to understand their needs and process. 


We will learn about what makes each biome unique, what opportunities and challenges each species must face to live there, and how we can protect these awe-inspiring ecosystems threatened by change and outside impacts.

Zoo Adventurers  -  Ages 10-12
Wildlife Warriors
in Today's World

Pandas!  Whales!  Tigers!  What does it mean to be endangered? And what can we do about animals facing extinction? 

Students age 10-12 will explore the world of endangered animals and wildlife conservation and come to understand how animals become rare, how scientists study them, and how we can use that information to save them from extinction.

With Zookeeper Drew, a professional animal educator and conservationist, these students will become familiar with how habitat loss, introduced species, and poaching can put iconic animals at risk and how conservationists in the field protect these rare creatures.  From the wilderness to the city zoos, people all over the world are working to protect our environment and the animals that live here.  We'd love to have you be part of the next generation of wildlife warriors.  Join us!
