Virtual Creature Feature
Join a zookeeper, education employee and an animal ambassador for an opportunity to Get Closer and learn more about an animal species living at the Edmonton Valley Zoo! Each program provides participants with a short explanation of how we care for the highlighted species, some fun facts about the individual animals you see on screen as well as an interactive Q&A portion.
These programs are best suited for groups no larger than 35 people. The program time may vary depending on the number of questions asked by participants, but will not exceed 60 minutes. If you would like to focus on a particular theme, mention it at the time of booking and we will do our best to accommodate.
The animals highlighted are determined by which day you request to book and are only available at 9am. The schedule, effective after October 11, 2022:
- Mondays: Seals and sea lions
- Tuesdays: Red panda
- Wednesdays: Raptor / bird of prey
- Thursdays: Small tractable animals
- Fridays: Small tractable animals
