It’s all happening at the zoo. In honor of American Zoo Day on Jul. 1, The Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) wants to bring the zoo home to you. Zoo and aquarium fans can visit their favorite animals at AZA-accredited facilities around the country by “walking” through AZA’s YouTube playlist


Hear from zookeepers, view up close footage of your favorite animals, and go behind the scenes to learn more about each species. YouTube playlists play automatically, so kids, big and small, can learn and be entertained while in quarantine.

Visit for more information and take a “walk” through a zoo virtually, while learning more about the importance of conservation.
