Brookfield Zoo Brings The Zoo To You With Facebook Live Chats

While the Chicago Zoological Society recently decided to close it's doors to the public based on developments around COVID-19, that doesn't mean Brookfield Zoo stops being a zoo. And if you can't come to the zoo, the zoo is ready to come to you.


Whether you're looking for ways to make your kids' time at home entertaining and educational or you're just looking for a fun way to break up the day, Brookfield Zoo is hosting Bring The Zoo To You live chats on our Facebook page every weekday for the time being. Monday through Friday, stop by the Facebook page at 11:00 a.m. Central and enjoy a live chat with our animal care staff and some of our animals. We're going to be bringing you some of the coolest and most interesting animals around while also providing informative sessions that engage and educate. 

We kicked off our Bring The Zoo To You series with a special chat about prehensile tails (ones that can grasp or hold objects) featuring Sandy the binturong. We then followed that up with a look at the importance of camouflage for snakes, featuring Casper the leucistic ball python and friends.

Some of the animals that will be featured in upcoming chats include Leo the red panda, Quilbert the prehensile-tailed porcupine, Whirl the Amur tiger, Charger the California sea lion, and many more. You never know which Brookfield Zoo animal might show up on your screen.

So make sure you're subscribed to our Facebook page as well as the Bring The Zoo To You event page so you'll get a reminder each day. And join us each weekday at 11:00 a.m. for another Bring The Zoo To You chat!
