In celebration of National Wildlife Week, we're sharing some resources to help you explore nature and wildlife right from home.

Try a Virtual Zoo Visit

Observe animal behavior through the following links.

These are just a sampling of what is available. Search for "virtual zoo" or "animal webcam" and you'll find many more!

Free Educational Materials

Enjoy free access to National Wildlife Federation’s award-winning educational materials and programs. You and your child can explore the full array of curricula, activities, and projects for the National Wildlife Federation’s Eco-Schools Program. Nature Guides help kids explore local wildlife. Or, stay in touch with a far-away relative by talking on the phone about the wildlife that’s native to their area.
