ZooMobile - Live Animal Program
Let us bring live animals to your pre-K through 12th grade classroom with the Sacramento Zoo’s ZooMobile! We can visit schools, community centers or libraries that are within an hour's drive of the Zoo.

View ZooMobile descriptions here and search for available dates!

Thanks to a grant received from the Yocha Dehe Community Fund we were able to offer a limited number of ZooMobile scholarships. Visit the scholarship page for more information.

Sponsor a ZooMobile!
Help us bring live animals to a school or classroom. You, your company or your organization can purchase a ZooMobile for economically disadvantaged schools, or any school of your choice.

We can visit schools that are within an hour's drive of the Zoo. We will do up to three programs per moring or two per afternoon, in the same presentation room. Your classroom must be at a school, community center or library; we cannot take the ZooMobile to a private home.
