All About Habitats

by  The Toledo Zoo

Program image

Habitats are places where animals live. From deserts to rain forests to oceans, habitats are as diverse as the animals that live there. Compare and contrast different habitats by visiting exhibits at the Toledo Zoo to meet live animals up close and personal. Students will learn the essential needs of animals and how habitats meet these needs. All Toledo Zoo Programs include a live tour of an animal exhibit with a knowledgeable guide and time for interaction with participants.
