Animal Meet & Greet

Virtual Offering

Join us from the comfort of your own home to meet some of the amazing ambassador animals in our care, like owls, turtles, chinchillas and snakes! During this virtual encounter, you'll have an opportunity for a close-up view and get to ask questions about the animals.

Register Today!

Saturday and Sunday, 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.

To discuss different time options or for general inquiries, please contact the Education Department at 617-989-3742 or email education@zoonewengland.org

Our educators will address your questions and help your group learn more about some of our charismatic creatures and the stories they have to share! To keep our encounters exclusive and personal, we limit each booking to a maximum of 15 devices logged in. This experience is great for birthday parties, scouts, office meetings, special events and more. We hope to see you soon!
