Saint Louis Zoo

St. Louis, MO
United States

The Saint Louis Zoo was voted #1 Zoo in America by a Zagat's and Parents' Magazine survey. Our mission is to conserve animals and their habitats through animal management, research, recreation, and educational programs that encourage the support and enrich the experience of the public. 


Our videoconferencing classes will introduce you and your students to a variety of animals and topics including: habitats, ecology, and adaptations. Older students will also learn about our conservation programs going on here at the Zoo and around the world. 

Live animals from our Emerson Children's Zoo will visit our studio during the programs. At this time, we do not have the ability to broadcast remotely from Zoo exhibits.
