🦥Cincinnati Zoo

While the Cincinnati Zoo is closed and kids are home from school, let us help make your children’s hiatus from school fun and educational.

Join us for a Home Safari Facebook Live each weekday at 3pm EDT where we will highlight one of our amazing animals and include an activity you can do from home.

To watch our live videos just go to the Cincinnati Zoo Facebook page and scroll down. It will appear like the most recent post on our feed. You will not be able to see the videos from this event page. Once the live video has ended the video will remain on our Facebook page so you can watch later if you can’t make it during the live session.

Don’t have access to social media? No worries! All videos will be posted on our website and to our YouTube channel shortly after the Facebook Live ends.

The at-home activities will all be posted to this webpage – http://cincinnatizoo.org/home-safari-resources/
