Teachers and Wildlife
Whether you are seeking to enrich your class field trip to the Zoo or Aquarium or a lesson in your own classroom, the Education Division of the Wildlife Conservation Society offers a wide range of opportunities to enhance science curricula for grades K–12. Our time-tested, teacher-endorsed programs include Distance Learning Expeditions, Wildlife Theater shows, and workshops for teachers and students that are aligned with the National Science Education Standards.
Take your students on a trip to the zoo without leaving the classroom! Using two-way videoconferencing technology, the Bronx Zoo’s Distance Learning Expeditions bring live, engaging programs directly to your K–12 class. Programs include extensive teacher support materials.
The Education Division of WCS offers a variety of learning experiences for teachers. Whether onsite at one of our five WCS parks across the city, online from the comfort of your home, or through our partnerships, teachers can earn credit as they learn how to connect to wild nature.
Enrich your class field trip to the zoo with an educational program. Our inquiry- and standards-based curricula take advantage of the Zoo’s naturalistic exhibits and allow students up-close encounters with animals from the Zoo’s unmatched educational animal collection in a supervised environment.
