Project Report | Jan 24, 2023
Fall Update 2023

By Rachael Risby Raz | International Relations Manager

As a new calendar year begins, we have lots of plans for the education program.

We hope to establish a program for special education schools that will bring classes to the Zoo on a weekly basis with tailored content and specialized guides.

There are a number of Jewish schools from the local area who have started having full days of classes outside at the Zoo, every week. For this purpose, the Zoo has built a number of special ‘outdoor’ classrooms located at different areas of the Zoo grounds.

This is part of the new post-pandemic era, where educational institutes have discovered the benefits of outside learning. We plan to encourage schools from the Arab sector to also be part of this program and hope we will be able to convince them to join us.

During this current school year, we already have ten schools from the Arab sector who come to the Zoo once a week (certain classes from the school) for a visit (not a full day of regular classes) and this has been a great success.

Another addition this year will be sleepovers for the above-mentioned leadership program. The Zoo recently built an authentic Bedouin tent near Noah’s Ark which can host groups and allows for overnight camping inside the Zoo.
