October 2014 NC Zoo Field Research Camp!

The 25 September 2014 application deadline for the October 2014 Field Research Camp has now passed, and we are no longer accepting new applications.

Information about future camps will be available on this website, as well as on the NC Zoo Society website. Thank you for your interest in the October 2014 camp!


Spend two days and one unforgettable night at the NC Zoo’s field research camp. Campers will engage in the same activities that guide the Zoo’s field biologists when they are working in the wild to save free-ranging elephants, gorillas, salamanders and more.

[To learn more about the camp, please download the Field Camp Brochure. Also, be sure to see WUNC-TV's North Carolina Now feature about the Field Research Camp.]

Campers will use radio telemetry, camera traps, drones, night-vision equipment and more to study native wildlife and the Zoo’s exotic animals. At the end of the first day, students will camp by the African Plains exhibit and will conduct night-time research on lemurs.
