Content Provider: Saint Louis Zoo
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.

"I enjoy and learn something every time we make a connection with St. Louis Zoo."
"This program was the best we have had this year."
"The program included photos, live action, real animals and a competent presenter. It was the most fun we have had all year with our elementary students. That is all you can ask for a presentation!"
"Our instructor was so easy to work with. It was her idea to create a custom program based on what I had described our unit of study to her. She was incredibly engaging; she had my students attention on a day they were unable to interact with her because our microphone wasn't working. She offered fantastic information that I was able to stem lessons from the rest of my unit. The kids have asked every day this week if we get to talk to her again...in which I have to disappoint them."
The Saint Louis Zoo is also a three-time recipient of the CILC Pinnacle Award, Honorable Mention.
