Bringing the Zoo to You

Our mission at Fresno Chaffee Zoo is to engage, inspire and conserve. To foster connections with amazing animals and conservation, we are bringing the Zoo to  you with behind-the-scenes videos, animal ambassador presentations and educational activities that families can do at home. We hope to continue to inspire wonder and learning even when you aren’t visiting us at the Zoo!

See our full library of educational videos and activities below and continue to check back as we are always adding more.
