Conservation ZooMobile

The Conservation ZooMobile is a hands-on experience that teaches learners of all ages about conservation issues and invites them to help find solutions that they can implement in their own lives. Using an interactive "learning station" approach, your class or multipurpose room will be organized into four stations, with your students rotating between each one led by Oakland Zoo educators. Stations include live animals, The Four Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Rot), HIPPO (the five main threats to the world's wildlife), and a simulated rainforest. Your students will be introduced to conservation concepts, vocabulary, and ideas for how they can help the environment around them.
