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 these resources that include behind-the-scenes videos, Animal Ambassador presentations, and educational activities that can be done at home or at school.

See our full library of educational videos and activities below. You can also book one of our Zoom-Mobile programs to have one of our educators and Animal Ambassadors ZOOM to your classroom or living room.
