Can't bring the group to the zoo? Bring the zoo to you!
We offer outreach programs for all age groups and audience sizes in any venue!
Check out our age group and subject oriented outreach programs below.

Outreach programs can come to any location to present a minimum of 4 animals to any size or age group.Outreach programs can be either indoor or outdoor, weather permitting. Outreach programs can be specified to a particular subject, animal group, theme, or can be booked as just as an interactive event. Additional animals are available for an extra cost. Travel within a 12-mile radius of Sarasota Jungle Gardens is included. Additional mileage is at an extra cost.
Outreach programs can be booked as a presentation or static-display option. 

Outreach presentations are 60 minutes long and include an approximately 15 minute presentation on each of the animals from the selected program. Presentations include facts, information, and an interaction with the selected program animals.
(Please be aware not all outreach animals are touchable.) 

Outreach static-displays are 45 minute long booth-style displays. This option provides guests with more interactivity with each animal, and no formal presentation is given.
