Escape from the ordinary and awaken your wild side by joining the Zoo for Virtual Voyages on our social media. You can go behind the scenes, tour the Zoo, and cure your curiosity (or boredom!) with our animals, Keepers and Education staff.
The Virginia Zoo’s Augmented Reality Tour powered by ECPI and Life Preserve was created to give Zoo visitors insider information about our animals here at the Virginia Zoo and their counterparts in the wild. The tour features 12 stops around the Zoo and offers visitors the opportunity to learn about our animal residents, conservation efforts for the species, watch behind-the-scenes videos and more!
