Not All Scientists Wear Lab Coats: Celebrating World Frog Day at Bronx Zoo

Not All Scientists Wear Lab Coats: Celebrating World Frog Day

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

The Bronx Zoo's newest interactive series highlights the diverse professionals in STEM careers in "Not All Scientists Wear Lab Coats: A WCS Global Scientist Series." This session will focus on birding. Birding for many of us means spotting a life bird, snapping a photo, and entering it and a count into an app. Guest Rebecca McGuire, Avian Ecologist of WCS Arctic Beringia Program, grew up in the wilderness of rural Alaska, without electricity or running water, and learned from books and observation of wildlife. That is where her appreciation for migratory birds of the tundra regions flourished. Join the Bronx Zoo for activities and a discussion in celebration of Migratory Bird Day! Discuss the significance of tracking systems, Rebecca's conservation identity story, and her experience “counting eiders migrating past while on the pack ice at the absolute edge of North America with polar bears appearing as if by magic every time I scanned the ice around me.” Advanced registration required.

  • The Bronx Zoo is open year-round. We close on the following holidays: Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, New Year's Day, and Martin Luther King Day. Spring and summer are naturally high-attendance seasons, but we encourage guests to visit during fall and winter as well. When the weather cools off, many animals are more active and you'll encounter fewer crowds. 

    With 265 acres of wildlife habitats and attractions, it's difficult to see the entire zoo in one day. For shorter visits, take a two-hour tour of our most popular exhibits, like Tiger Mountain, Himalayan Highlands, Congo Gorilla Forest, and World of Reptiles. During the warmer months, guests with young children can begin their visit at the Children's Zoo and then stroll Astor Court to meet our sea lions and visit Madagascar! In wintertime, warm up in JungleWorld, our giant indoor rainforest habitat.
