Beginning in 2008, we opened the gates for school tours of our facility. These tours are designed to educate children of any grade level about pivotal issues concerning the support and welfare of animals everywhere.
1. Brights Zoo offers self-guided and guided tours. Topics covered include learning to recognize animals at each exhibit, adaptations for survival and general information along with interesting facts about each species. Animal photography is encouraged.
2. Animal care focuses on the everyday activities associated with caring for animals and concentrates on feeding habits and veterinary care. Feeding habits cover the diet and nutrition for the animals both in captivity and in their natural habitat. Veterinary care features common animal pests and parasites, and preventative measures and treatments for controlling them.
3. Conservation covers man's impact on his environment and demonstrates the need for the protection of natural habitats required for the survival of wild animals.
