Wildlife Action Crew

A program for teens interested in animals and conservation

Wildlife Action Crew is for teenagers interested in animals and conservation. Teens conduct a conservation case study, learning about and discussing a conservation issue, animals that are affected, and what is being done to help.  They will select an action that addresses the conservation issue and work in groups to create a campaign to promote their message. This is a six-week program that is offered multiple times throughout the school year. This program happens at the Zoo and follows state and local guidelines, including wearing a face mask and maintaining social distancing. For more information about our safety procedures, please see our FAQs for educational programs at the Zoo.
