Digital Resources

WCS Education brings our parks and our educational programming to you online. We have great resources available for teachers, students, families, and anyone looking to engage in exciting and enriching virtual science learning!

Wildlife Camp Online

We reinvented our camps so we can safely provide your camper with opportunities to get exclusive behind-the-scenes looks at our animals and exhibits and meet wild animal keepers and scientists. Our camps offer your family the flexibility of synchronous and asynchronous activities throughout the day, and campers will love experiencing close encounters and deep dives like never before! In Wildlife Camp Online, your camper will play games and interact with other campers and enjoy online and offline activities!

Wildlife School Online

From puppet shows to scientific observation, and from the rainforest to the depths of the ocean, engage your students with our live, interactive, educational programs for students PreK - 8th grade.


As we cannot be at the Zoo and Aquarium yet, our Discovery Guide youth volunteers are creating a virtual adventure for us all summer long. Check back here every two weeks until the end of the summer to find new & fun family-friendly activities you can do in your own home.

WCS presents Field Sight

WCS presents Field Sight is the newest project from our professional development team. Pairing the insight of our educators with the expertise of WCS field staff we are excited to bring you the stories of the conservation work we are doing all over the world. Hear what it’s like to work on the ground protecting wildlife straight from the source, and bring this valuable information into your classroom with curated curriculum tools.
