If you find yourself stuck in a rut entertaining the kids with games, activities, and other entertainment online, spare a thought about Zoos Victoria. Escape to the zoo and let the kids enjoy learning more about animals other than cats and dogs, through tours and animal encounters virtually.

The zoo is on a mission to put a smile on your face, and it just might be the escape you need. Let the zoo into your home from wherever you are around the world through live cams, keeper talks, and other virtual updates.

You'll find all the tours online for FREE, however, spare a thought for the zoo doing it tough as they fight for our furry, scaly and feathered friends, facing extinction. Your support is more important than ever, so head to the donation page and make a straight out donation, adopt an animal, give a gift to the zoo or support the bushfire recovery.

The fires may have been doused, but the recovery is ongoing and as vital as ever. It has taken a bit of a step back with a new pandemic at our doorstep, but the help needed is very real. Give a thought towards supporting the zoo is by fundraising for wildlife, giving to the Endowment Fund, becoming a conservation partner, or gifting them in your will. Every little bit helps, so if you have a few dollars spare from not going to theatres, restaurants, movies, pubs, and so on, please help.
