Wild [Animal] Science At The NC Zoo!

Due to significant student demand for this camp, the NC Zoo Society has decided to leave registration open beyond the original 30 June 2014 deadline. If enough campers sign up after 30 June, the Zoo will consider offering a second camp in October 2014. More details will follow but, in the meantime, please use the form below if you would like to be considered for a spot in the potential 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.

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 day, students will camp by the African Plains exhibit and will conduct night-time research on lions.
