San Diego Zoo
Home to over 3,700 endangered animal species from a myriad of international habitats, the world-famous San Diego Zoo is a site of education, conservation, and awareness. Students will see acclaimed botanical displays housing over 700,000 plants, along with almost 660 species and subspecies from a variety of countries. Through aviaries, bioclimatic zones, and scenic pathways, the San Diego Zoo showcases rare and unique animal and plant communities in naturalistic environments and close-up encounters. The Zoo is not currently admitting non-householded groups, however in non-COVID times admission to the Zoo is free for San Diego County students on most days throughout the traditional school year.
All San Diego Zoo Education programs are conducted virtually. We can send teachers a link for a Zoom meeting which they can share with their students OR teachers can send us a link to join them and their students on their preferred platform. Teachers will be able to specify their preference when they sign up for their program.
