Discover the Wonders of the World's Wildlife with a ZooMobile Program!

An Oakland Zoo ZooMobile program will bring animal ambassadors to you! An educator will bring small animals and animal artifacts to teach grade or group appropriate topics. A myriad of ZooMobile outreach programs have been tailored to meet the needs of your group.


Can't come to the Zoo? We will come to you! An Education Specialist will come to your daycare, senior center, library, or organization, and use small live animals and animal artifacts to inspire and educate about our natural world.

Birthday Party ZooMobile

Make your child's next birthday a memorable one with a Birthday Party ZooMobile. Perfect for a small family gathering in your home. The birthday child (ages four and older) and their friends will meet four to five small animals, most of which can be touched. The birthday child will receive a Zoo gift to mark the occasion. A ZooMobile party is fun, educational and entertaining for all!

Conservation ZooMobile

Using an interactive "learning station" approach, one of our Education Specialists and a group of our specially-trained conservation docents will bring live zoo animals and other fun and engaging interactive activities, biofacts, and even a portable rainforest to engage participants, ages three - adulthood.
