April 8 is Zoo Lover’s Day. What better way to celebrate than to visit a zoo—virtually, of course.

Virtual Zoo Camp at the Birmingham Zoo. Camp is hosted on Facebook to give viewers a unique look inside the zoo. You can find then on Facebook and Instagram. Tour the zoo and get behind-the-scenes guided tours while you meet the animals, participate in interesting lessons and even get a chance to ask questions about the day’s lesson.

Meet the Birmingham Zoo Camp on Facebook each weekday at 11 a.m. These 10-minute episode will include an engaging activity for the entire family to enjoy.

You can learn more about it on this video clip, or head on over to their Facebook page at 11:00 any weekday for their Zoo Camp.
