In its 23rd season, Homework Hotline is a statewide educational show on PBS where students can call in to get help with homework. It is shown on eight stations through New York State as well as streamed through their Web site, with 240,000 viewers per year.
The Zoo has partnered with this program for the past decade, presenting an animal ambassador and educating on conservation as well as spreading the word about the Zoo's many events. Benefits to this exposure helps to increase our reach and encourages people to visit the Zoo.
