Bringing the Zoo to you

We are dedicated to building connections between humans and animals and we will continue to do that as long as we are able. We’re having so much fun bringing the Zoo to you on social media through extra posts, keeper takeovers, and virtual visits.

Tune in to our Facebook Live videos every weekday at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. for fun and educational chats with keepers, behind-the-scenes tours, and animal encounters. Or check out SCZ Lives you’ve missed on our YouTube channel.

ZOOM with the ZOO

Perfect for childcare groups, virtual classroom field trips, social-distancing-friendly birthday parties, or families who want to explore a specific area of the Zoo while we’re closed, these LIVE video adventures will be tailored to suit your unique interests and requests.

Scheduling and Pricing info can be found here.

A Zoom link will be emailed after your session is scheduled.

Support the Zoo

While we are closed, you can be assured our animals will continue to be expertly cared for by a courageous group of dedicated staff, including veterinarians and keepers.

As a non-profit, we rely on funding from ticket sales, memberships, event revenue, and donations to support the more than 3,000 animals that call the Sedgwick County Zoo their home. If you’re looking for a way to help, and if you’re able, please consider a donation to the Zoo’s operations fund.
