"Just for You" Akron Zoo


Virtual Animal Experiences 

Due to the Akron Zoo opening on June 17, our virtual animal experiences are on hold. We'll share on social media once we are able to start scheduling again. 

Enjoy a one-of-a-kind animal experience just for you, your family or your company’s next zoom meeting while helping to support and care for your animals at the Akron Zoo! 

All funds go to support the care of the animals at the Akron Zoo.

Your one-of-a-kind virtual animal get-together can be connected via one of the following:

  1. FaceTime
  2. GoToMeeting
  3. Zoom

Each experience is approximately 20 minutes. Available from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. daily.

Once you submit your request, a zoo representative will contact you within 72 hours to set up your experience.

 To request a virtual animal experience, please contact the Education Department or fill out the form below.


Other Ways You Can Help

  1. Take care of yourself and your family by following the precautions set forth by the CDC. Without you there is no Akron Zoo.

  2. Donate directly to the zoo to support our mission to inspire lifelong learning and conservation action, while providing the highest quality care for over 1,000 amazing animals.
