|About the Content Provider||
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 take you and your students on virtual tours of our most popular exhibits and then teach your students about animal habitats 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.

"Great program! I would highly recommend it."
