Zoo on Wheels


For the safety of our staff and animals, we will not be providing our usual outreach program, Zoo On Wheels, for the foreseeable future.

We thank everyone for their continued interest in this interactive program, and encourage all who regularly book to visit Philly Zoo to You  to check out all we are doing for school groups in these challenging times.
