Zooniversity @ Stevensville Springfest

June 3, 10:00 am5:00 pm

Stevensville Memorial Hall, 2508 Stevensville Road, Stevensville

Bring the kids to enjoy Safari Niagara’s travelling outreach show, Zooniversity!

Safari Niagara’s “Zooniversity Outreach Program” is designed to provide an informative, educational, close-up animal encounter for all ages. Dynamic, interactive presentations featuring mammals, reptiles and birds will WOW you.

Learn how zoos play a significant role in conserving biodiversity by helping to prevent the disappearance of many species through breeding programs, and conservation projects. Learn how the role of zoos over the last decade or more has changed from one of housing animals simply for public display, to one that is a life boat for species around the globe. Learn how different animal species are adopting to Urban Sprawl and what you can do to help them survive in a concrete jungle.

This up-close personal experience with Safari Niagara’s animal will leave a lasting impression and truly make your event memorable.
