Does your child dream of becoming a Zoo veterinarian?
Your child will travel behind-the-scenes to the Zoo’s state of the art, NEW Animal Health Center for a day in the life of a Zoo Vet experience. Participants will utilize the Freeport-McMoRan Education Gallery to view the surgery, treatment, and pharmacy rooms of the Animal Health Center. They’ll experience first-hand the importance of math and science in diagnosing and treating animal ailments through hands-on activity stations that are based on real-life zoo scenarios. After they’ve finished helping all of their patients, they’ll earn their Dr. Zoo certificate!
Parents, please plan on dropping your child off for this program.
Drop-off and pick-up will be at the front of the Zoo.
