Student research passes

Teaching your students how to conduct research? The Zoo can help! The Student Research Pass gives your college and high school students limited access to the Zoo for the purpose of using our animal collection as a resource for learning how to conduct research.

Here's how the program works:

Step 1: Meet the criteria

Read the program guidelines to ensure they fit your course objectives.

Step 2: Complete the form

Submit the zoo's on-line project request form here.

Step 3: Purchase passes

Upon approval, you will be e-mailed a link that allows you to purchase passes either on-line or through an advanced ticket purchase form. The zoo accepts payment by school check, cash, purchase order, credit, or debit card. We do not accept personal checks.

Step 4: Receive and distribute passes

Your passes will be mailed within two weeks from the date of order to the address indicated on the project request form. Distribute the passes and the important student information document to your students.

Step 5: Share your students' research

Provide the zoo with two or three samples of your students' work. Mail selected research projects to:
