Zoomobile Birthdays

Can’t come to the Zoo? Invite the Zoo to you– birds, snakes tarantulas and more can be invited to your next birthday celebration.

Let the Zoo come to you!

Bring the zoo to you, with just a phone call our animal ambassadors can visit your school or facility. Using biofacts, activities and up-close animal encounters we bring the outside world inside to you. Choose from a variety of programs, designed for all age groups to help fulfill State Standards.


Animal Ambassadors

Let our animal ambassadors travel and introduce you to the wonders of the animals kingdom. You will get an up close personal view of  some fascinating animals as you learn about a variety of creatures from the wild.
