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. For more information about our safety procedures and cancellation policy, please see our FAQs for educational programs at the Zoo.
For 13 to 18 year-olds
Teens will investigate the main threats that geckos face in their natural range. Through their investigation they will discover ways that people can help with these threats. They will select an action that benefits geckos that they will advocate for in our community. Teens will work in groups to create an educational station, a social media campaign, or a video to promote their action.
