I highly recommend following the Detroit Zoo on Instagram, Facebook and/or Twitter. I love what they’re doing to Bring the Zoo to You… Gorgeous pictures, educational content and live streams. #VirtualVitaminZ

Zoos across the country are doing amazing things. Google “Bring the zoo to you.” A ton of videos will pop up from zoos around the country.

This is a great educational resource for kids 4-6: https://www.pbslearningmedia.org/resource/evscps.sci.life.safari/zoo-safari/

Enjoy and Happy National Zoo Day!
