Sunset Zoo's Education Department offers a variety of classes and programs to provide organized groups, families, and individuals in-person and virtual experiences of the natural world. The department even cares for a collection of Education Animal Ambassadors who, along with trained staff, are featured in many of the Zoo's programs.
