  • Take a dive into Rocky Shores and learn about the amazing adaptations of ocean animals! We’ll touch fur, flippers, and fins. Compare the rough texture of corals and shark skins to silky seal fur. Feel the sharp teeth and long claws of polar bears, and learn how these animals survive in their icy homes. Class includes instructional time with animal artifacts, scents, sounds, touching, and a short visit in the Zoo for the child and accompanying adult.

Utah’s Hogle Zoo’s Zoo Just for You programming has been developed specifically for students 6-21 with special needs. Live animals, photographs, skull models, pelts, animal figures and more are used to engage students and demonstrate concepts. Our program utilizes a sensory motor approach where students move between stations and are encouraged to touch, smell and feel all appropriate items. Registration closes one week prior to class date in order to arrange any necessary accommodations for each student. Unregistered siblings cannot be accommodated.
