Your School Can Be a Partner in Saving Wildlife
One of the Houston Zoo’s goals is to inspire our school group audiences to partner with us to save wildlife. There are everyday actions your students can do to save animals in the wild. We know your students are the next generation of conservation champions. Check out the following opportunities to get involved!
Mascots for Saving Wildlife
Does your school have “Tiger Pride”? Are your students the best “Fighting Falcons”? Your school’s passion can be the channel to saving that animal in the wild. This program connects your students with local and international Zoo partners saving wildlife, and engages your students in wildlife-saving actions such as cell phone or paper recycling that tie directly with TEKS. Your students can meet with our keepers and animal ambassadors that match your mascot during a Zoo visit.

Students have the opportunity to learn more about endangered animals and the challenges that face them through research projects and educating the public.
Pollinator Garden Partnership
The Houston Zoo is helping to save pollinators through our Pollinator Initiative, and we would love to have your school as a partner! This program connects your students with local wildlife found right in their school yards, and engages your students in nature by focusing on establishing native gardens around their school communities. This important wildlife-saving action ties directly with TEKS and allows your students to bring their learning outside their classroom walls.
