Virtual Zoo Educational Resources

We are excited to introduce the Birmingham Zoo’s Virtual Zoo! The Virtual Zoo is a great source of fun and engaging resources for students of all ages.  Each video will allow you to join us as we take you behind the scenes to learn some amazing things about animals and staff at the Birmingham Zoo. Episodes will range from special behind the scenes tours of the Zoo, interesting lessons about animals, and Birmingham Zoo conservation work in our own backyard and all around the world. Videos include an engaging activity for the entire family to enjoy, lists of new vocabulary introduced, and links to curriculum standards for relevant grade levels.
