Virtually Explore the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore

Four penguins at the Maryland Zoo

The Maryland Zoo is one of the biggest attractions in all of Baltimore, and it’s just a short drive from our Fells Point apartments. However, you can now skip the drive and virtually enjoy the zoo from home! Thanks to the Maryland Zoo’s new website, you can engage with all of their incredible animals online. Our favorite exhibits from the Maryland Zoo include:

Meet the Animals

The zoo houses a whopping 130 species of animals, most of which you can learn about on the “Meet the Animals” page. Navigate through the eye-catching and user-friendly webpage to find write-ups on your favorite animals. Along the way, you will learn fun facts, like where each animal lives and how it raises its babies. Plus, you will also have the opportunity to learn about each animal’s conservation status.

Virtual Field Talks

After meeting the animals, you might be curious about the people behind the zoo. If so, be sure to check out a virtual field talk. In these Zoom discussions, an expert will share information about their personal work on the frontlines of conservation. Past speakers have included representatives of the Okapi Conservation Project, as well as reps from Maryland’s own Department of Natural Resources. These sessions are both fascinating and inspiring, so you won’t want to miss them. Hop on for free; no registration required. 

Live Cams

For a fun and relaxing time, put on one of the zoo’s many live feeds. You can check in on lions, penguins, elephants, flamingos, and more. In addition, you can also take a look at the African watering hole cam to see different types of animals, like zebras and ostriches, intermingle. Check the daily schedule on their website. If you’re lucky, you might even catch one of the animals during feeding time.
