Can’t make it to Zoo School? The zoo can come to you!

Busch Gardens will bring live animals to your school for these exciting 30-minute presentations. Complete with an animal meet and greet and a Q&A with our educators, our outreaches will keep students of all ages engaged and entertained!


Presentations are designed to fit within your class periods, and can be conducted on your school stage or in a multipurpose space.
