Does your child dream of becoming a Zoo veterinarian?

Your child will travel behind-the-scenes to the Zoo’s 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. 


Designed for 8-12 year-olds

Parents, please note: reading, writing, and math skills must be at or above a 3rd-grade level to fully participate in the activities during this program.
