You Can Hang Out at the Phoenix Zoo Every Day On Facebook Live

If you’re a parent drowning in the demands of homeschool activities, we have the answer for you. In fact, you do not need to be a kid to enjoy this! Multiple times a week, the Phoenix Zoo is going Live on Facebook with webcams highlighting different animals throughout the zoo.

So far, in the Facebook Live video highlights, you can find features on safari animals, a tour through the Animal Care Center, “Breakfast with the Orangutans,” squirrel monkeys, an Arizona snake, and more… just to name a few! Not only can you join Live almost daily, but you and your kids can also scroll past videos to re-watch the virtual fun at the zoo. Videos are anywhere from 5 – 30 minutes long and range from informative educational videos to live webcams watching the animals at play in the “wild” of the zoo. Videos are free to enjoy on the Phoenix Zoo Facebook page.

For more zoo fun, check out the Phoenix Zoo’s next upcoming event: Art on the Wild Side. Offered daily from May 16 to May 31, Art on the Wild Side will be held at the Savanna Gallery at The Phoenix Zoo. Featuring three of Arizona’s favorite painters, Anne Peyton, Joy DeGoede, and Lucy Dickens, the gallery exhibit will show off the latest work inspired by the natural world. Created especially for the Phoenix Zoo, these pieces have not yet been shown outside of this event. Guests will have the opportunity to be inspired by the Zoo’s mission to care for the natural world through these incredible works of art. A portion of all gallery proceeds will benefit the Zoo’s conservation initiatives.

If you want to give back while you enjoy these videos from the comfort of your home, you can donate to the Zoo Relief Fund, or become a zoo member today. Head to their main Facebook page where you can click the large, blue “DONATE” button at the top to do so.
