Adopt a Zoo Animal PDF Print E-mail

One of the activities our Scouts can take part in is Adopt a Zoo Animal at their local zoo.  The team can approach a local zoo about adopting an animal as their personal mascot.  Leo the Lion is the mascot of our Scout Programs, so lions are a popular choice, but Scouts can choose any zoo animal they like.


Perhaps Scouts can arrange special visits the the zoo, personal interaction (depends upon the animal and zoo policy of course), and perhaps discounted admittance to the zoo.


We encourage our Scouts to take an interest in the environment and in animal and plant life.  This activity gives our Scouts the opportunity to learn about their animal, such as what they eat, where they live, and how they behave.  Scouts are encouraged to upload pictures to us of themselves and of their adopted animal friend!
