Zoo videos let animals visit us at home

ST. LOUIS – The Saint Louis Zoo is closed to visitors through at least April 22, but we can still see some of our animal friends through a program called #BringTheStlZooToYou!

During the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, keepers at the zoo are sharing photos and videos of the animals in their care.

And they are getting the best possible care, the zoo’s president and CEO, Jeffrey Bonner, said in a statement last month about the closure.

“The animals in our care are doing well and our animal care scientists and veterinarians have established procedures that protect the animals’ health, keeping them safe from exposure to disease,” Bonner said.

He reminded the public that the zoo was operating with a limited staff and in unusual circumstances.

“Our first priority is the care and well-being of our animals, but when we can, we will be happy to add something fun and positive to your newsfeed!” he said.

Bonner encourages people to check for daily updates from the St. Louis Zoo at FacebookTwitter and Instagram.

Staff is home to The NorthSider and The SouthSider weekly community newspapers. The SouthSider publishes 25,000 copies every Tuesday. The NorthSider publishes 25,000 copies every Thursday. They are distributed at over 600 locations across St. Louis.
