Going To The Zoo


This week The Children’s Hour went to the zoo in a broadcast from the Albuquerque Zoo’s Africa stage between the hyenas and chimps, with Mammal Curator, Dr. Erin Flynn, and zookeeper Alegria Lacy and one of the McCaw parrot’s she helps train, Salsa. With live music by the band Zoolojams, learn about how zoos are helping to save critically endangered species, and find out what a zookeeper’s job is like.

The Children’s Hour is Kids Public Radio.
