Zoo Atlanta and GPB Explore Animals

Zoo Atlanta and Georgia Public Broadcasting are exploring animals with a new interactive web-based multimedia learning package for middle school educators and students. This educational resource provides a series of animal based learning adventures that focus on conservation, research, and ecology.

The first stage in this joint web project is called "Caring for Gorillas." The site employs text, pictures, videos, games and other materials to provide an in-depth look into the world of gorillas in captivity and in the wild. In addition, some of the games and videos from the website will soon be available to the Zoo visitor at the Willie B. Gorilla Conservation Center.

Also, for the month of March, Zoo Atlanta will be transmitting live images from the gorilla habitats on PeachStar Channel 430 Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10AM-12 PM.
