Student Inquiries

Teachers: We are happy to support student inquiries into animals, animal care, conservation, and other related topics. Due to the large number of requests, we aim—but cannot guarantee—to answer inquiries via email within 10 business days. Preference will be given to students from Maryland schools.

Please be aware when making assignments that involve contacting the Zoo that our staff is unable to accommodate requests for either in-person or telephone interviews. The Zoo is also unable to accommodate job shadowing requests, but you may refer students to our Zoo Crew service learning program or to our college intern program.

Questions can be submitted using the form below:
