Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden
The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden closed to the public yesterday to do its part to curb the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). During the closure, the Zoo plans to offer Home Safari Facebook Lives seven days a week!
“We’re bringing the Zoo to people who are stuck at home,” said Cincinnati Zoo Director Thane Maynard. “This Zoo is so important to the community and not being able to visit will create a void that we’re trying to fill. The goal with the daily live sessions is to provide fun and educational content to people who are stuck at home.”
The Home Safaris will start today at 3 p.m. EST. The first one will feature the world’s most famous hippo, Fiona. To watch live, just visit the Zoo’s Facebook page at 3pm. The Zoo will also post the safaris on its website and on YouTube so everyone can view.
