Akron Zoo Education


Education at the Akron Zoo takes shape in many ways. Often, you may not even know that you have learned something. Although we have fun with education here, we consider it very serious. Zoo staff are not only working to provide new information about animals, but also trying to inspire people to be conservation minded about the animals in which they are learning.

For us, education can be described as making connections. We are trying to connect every visitor to the animals at the zoo in a way that will benefit conservation of the species in the wild. This connection may take place when a zookeeper describes a personality trait of an individual animal or when an education specialists brings a snake to first graders encouraging a closer look.
