Behind-the-Scenes Tours

Introducing our All New Virtual Behind the Scenes Tour with the Red Pandas!

Saturday May 30, 11:00 AM


Scientists spent years trying to classify red pandas; some thought they were part of the bear family, others the raccoon family. Red pandas were so unique that they decided to give them their own family name, Ailuridae!

Join us behind the scenes, from the comfort of your own home or office, to virtually meet our red pandas! While this tour will be virtual, we’ll still get up-close and personal, answering your questions and helping you learn more about these amazing, charismatic creatures!

  • To keep our tours personal, we limit each tour to a maximum of four devices logged in.
  • All ages are welcome with an adult present.
  • $200 for 30-minute virtual experience via Zoom. 
  • Donations for this program are appreciated and are non-refundable.
