Last month Humanim partnered with The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore to host a virtual ZOOmobile. The “Fur, Feathers, and Scales” ZOOmobile featured 3 Zoo Ambassadors: a Prehensile-Tailed Porcupine, Egyptian Tortoise, and Red-Tailed Hawk. Individuals enjoyed meeting each of the animals, learning about what makes them unique, asking questions, and interacting with the zookeepers.
The Virtual Zoomobile is part of Humanim’s Virtual Campus, a partnership with The Arc of Howard County to provide meaningful and engaging virtual learning opportunities for individuals who have been isolated at home during the pandemic. Thank you to the Maryland Zoo for their excellent programming, and to The Arc Maryland and Maryland Developmental Disabilities Council for their generous support in making this type of programming possible.
