If you’re not yet able to host a program from Wild Wonders at your site, the next best thing is to let us host a VIRTUAL PROGRAM exclusively for you! Distance learning doesn’t have to be the same thing you see everyday – it can be WILDLY different.
Want to “Walk on the Wild Side” from home? Visit “Our Big Backyard” or “The Emerald Forest” from your virtual classroom? Now, you can see ANY of our Education Programs! Wild Wonders has two options to fit your needs:
- A Virtual program with a keeper / educator introducing you to our animal ambassadors and followed by Q&A session
- A standalone video filmed onsite at Wild Wonders based on our of our Education Programs
Our virtual programs run about 40 minutes, and feature a keeper / educator and 5-6 of our animal ambassadors. Your host is very experienced and keeps the audience interested as she introduces the animals. You’ll learn where they come from, what they eat, what special adaptations they have, and how they spend their time in the wild. We get the animal close to the camera so you’ll get a great look at them! And, we always make time for questions.
For our virtual program, all you need is Zoom software (downloadable for free), and a good internet connection. Once you’ve picked a program, a date and time, and we’ve received payment, we will schedule a meeting in Zoom. We will send you the link to the meeting, and you can distribute it to the audience. Your viewers just need to click on the link at the appropriate time, and they’ll enter the meeting. So that the meeting isn’t complete chaos, we mute everyone while we’re talking about the animals, and we always leave time at the end for questions.
The price of the virtual program is $250.
Watching our prerecorded videos is just like watching any video online – no special software needed. We can make them available to you via Vimeo or Google Drive. We have two pricing options for videos based on potential audience size and the duration that you want the video open for viewing:
- For audience sizes of 75 people or fewer (about 3 classroom sizes), videos are priced at $100, and include unlimited viewings for 48 hours.
- For audience sizes greater than 75 people, videos are priced at $150, and included unlimited viewings for 96 hours.
Additional days are $7.50 / day.

Once you have chosen the video you want to watch, we will coordinate with you on the starting date and time that you want the video to be available. We will email you a link to the video and the password, and you can distribute it to your audience. After the duration you’ve chosen, we will change the access so the video cannot be seen.

The video was a success! I noticed there were a lot of views and I received emails from several teachers saying how much they enjoyed it. I liked how the girl who presented was very energetic and easy to understand. The information presented and the format of the video was great too!

Just wanted to say thanks for an awesome SRP show!! My kids absolutely loved it. They all went on about different things they liked about it like the animals featured and the facts shared. Dylan said, “Mom, I think I liked it more than Naruto and that means it was really good!” I didn’t get a chance to watch it with them, but I will soon.
Thank you to you and the Children’s staff for a fun SRP!
