Go behind-the-scenes… in front of your computer!

For a limited time only, you can visit your favorite Zoo animals through a Virtual Wild Encounter experience. Each experience includes 15 interactive minutes with your selected animal and an animal care staff member. Available via FaceTime only (or Zoom, by request.)

After you purchase a Virtual Wild Encounter, just email your FaceTime (or Zoom, by request) information at least 24 hours ahead of your encounter to wildencounters@pittsburghzoo.org. We’ll see you on the screen!
