Free Copy of "World of the California Sea Lion" DVD Available For School Teachers and Librarians
The El Paso Zoo World of the Sea Lion exhibit features many improvements for both sea lions and zoo visitors. Last year the Zoo installed a touch screen kiosk with narrated video in English and Spanish about the Zoo's four California sea lions. Teachers and librarians may request a free copy of the DVD for classroom and school library use. Streaming video segments of the teaching tool are available on the Zoo's website at www.elpasozoo.org. For more information on obtaining a copy call the Zoo education office 521-1884 or 521-1850 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
World of the California Sea Lion is a cooperative project between the Zoo and the El Paso Zoological Society with major funding by Sierra Providence Health Network and Wells Fargo Bank.
The educational program at the Zoo is designed to help people better understand conservation issues impacting the world's oceans. Seafood Watch cards distributed at daily sea lion programs guide consumers in making informed choices when selecting seafood. The cards were developed by the Monterrey Bay Aquarium and are updated annually with information on fish species that are becoming endangered because of over harvesting.
