Animal Ambassador Virtual Visits

Have Zoom meetings become the way of life for your organization? Teatown has the perfect solution to bring a bit of “edu”tainment to your next meeting – a visit from one of our Teatown Animal Ambassadors.

For a modest fee, we will happily send one of our star ambassadors and handler to your online meeting, drop into your classroom for a special end-of-year treat, or hang out with folks at a family gathering. We’ll keep it short, 10 – 20 minutes and provide interesting facts about the animal you choose.

Our Animal Ambassadors are geared up and ready to pop into your next event! Choose from the following perky creatures:

Teanut

For those meetings that can get a bit squirrely – invite Teanut our squirrel ambassador to show you how nutty meetings can really be! A $50 donation will supply Teanut with nuts for the next 3 months! You get 15 minutes of squirrel antics and lore.

Doug

Do you sometimes want to just rollover and play dead during a meeting? Doug our Virginia Opossum is ready to bring a little life and cuteness to your event! For a $50 donation Doug will bring his own treats – no need to share! You get 15 minutes to ask questions and watch Doug chow down.

Orion

Need some sage advice? Our wise great-horned owl can help! He is willing to stare down the opposition and provide unblinking agreement to any decision. A $50 donation keeps Orion supplied with frozen rats (defrosted before he eats them) for one month. In a 10 minute presentation you’ll learn interesting facts about owl behavior at the top of the forest food web.

Ralph

Are the vultures circling? Ralph our star Turkey Vulture would be happy to make an appearance in all of his feathered glory. A $75 donation brings a 20 minute presentation to your event, complete with details about a vulture’s peculiar habits and role as an essential worker. Your donation keeps Ralph fed for two weeks.
