The Changing World
http://www.virginiazoo.org/education.php?Content=k3rd

Journey through the cycle of nature as we watch the seasons change and learn how this affects the behavior of animals from Virginia and around the world. Through interactive activities and meeting live animals we will delve into how animals are dependant on their habitat for survival and their parallel behaviors such as hibernation, estivation, migration, and even nocturnal and diurnal.
