does not mean extinct! Join us as we
meet Ambassador Animals and discover examples of endangered species. As we meet the special animal guests, we’ll
explore the variety of issues impacting wildlife populations and what each of
us can do to help keep wildlife safe.

The Lee Richardson Zoo's Distance Learning Studio offers a multitude
of environmental programs to students all over the nation. Our programs include
2-4 live animals. However, we are currently unable to give programs from actual
exhibits around the zoo.
