If a student journalist contacts the Zoo for any media related request, it is up to the discretion of the Zoo to accommodate the student’s needs. We will try our best to accommodate the request, however, depending on staff availability and on the ROI of the efforts, we may deny access to student journalists due to the availability of our small staff. Not all requests can be approved. Additionally, we ask that any request be made at least two weeks in advance of potential filming/interviews, etc. We apologize for any inconvenience.
