Zoo School

​​

Zoo School provides teachers and students with in-depth exposure to both local and global plants and animals. Through hands on experiences and interactions with experts, students can become emotionally engaged with the conservation issues facing our planet.

Ideas for inspiration could include:

  • Investigating the diversity of life on the planet
  • Engaging in environmental issues and taking action
  • Exploring the roles of zoos
  • Connecting with the diverse wildlife and eco-regions of Canada
