Veterinary and Wild Animal Science Camps 2021
The North Carolina Zoo is currently laying out plans for its 2021 veterinary camps. We hope to post information on these camps during the next three weeks.
Wild Animal Science Camps
The North Carolina Zoo’s Wild Animal Science Camps provide fun and educational opportunities for young, budding scientists! The camps’ hand-on activities mimic the fieldwork conservation scientists undertake in the wild and offer realistic overviews of what it might be like to follow in the footsteps of conservation heroes, like Jane Goodall or Dian Fossey.
By engaging in carefully planned activities set up around the Zoo, campers will practice various esearch methods used by our Zoo’s field biologists when they work in the wild to save elephants, gorillas, vultures, and more. Campers will use camera traps, investigate human-wildlife conflict incidents, identify footprints and bones, and study animal behavior. Campers will also venture into the Zoo at night to try their hands at using night-time research tools to observe and study Zoo animals and native wildlife.
All campers will have the opportunity to meet new friends, network with people who share their interests and experience the joys and challenges of working to help protect wildlife and their habitats.
