Rescue at the Zoo
We prepare at home for natural disasters and weather emergencies. If hurricane winds or floods are heading our way, we can stay (ride it out) or leave (evacuate). But what happens when zoos, aquariums, or sanctuaries are in the storm’s path? How do zoo staff protect the animals? Who can come to help them after the storm has passed? This engaging children's book explores how zoos protect their animals during natural disasters. Through captivating storytelling and vivid photographs, young readers learn about zoo emergency plans and animal care. This educational book is perfect for kids interested in animal rescue, zoo life, and conservation efforts. It inspires a love for animals and an understanding of the importance of preparedness and teamwork in times of crisis.
