Utica Zoo “Call With the Wild” Digital Encounters


Spice up your morning conference call or invite friends and family to a video call with one of our many amazing animals. Want to see a red panda snack on camera or have our sea lions bark at your boss? Then this is for you. Call into the wild of the Utica Zoo from the comfort of your own home and interact with our engaging animals.

Staff will stay on your call for around 10 minutes. They will start with a quick introduction of themselves and the animal and then let our animals shine on your video call! Duration and involvement is dependent on the animals, as not all may stay interested in being on camera for the full 10-minute call. We will try our best to keep them interactive, with treats, asking for behaviors, and moving around their enclosure space as they move.

Cost: $35 for 10 minutes
