NEWS | Malone Zoo Education department to present animal show

The Malone University Zoo Education Department invites the community to view an animal handling show featuring Malone’s exotic animal collection Oct. 9 at Malone’s East Campus building on the corner of 25th Street and Yale Avenue.

The mission of the Zoo Education Department is to raise public awareness of and respect for local and exotic wildlife. Rehabilitated wildlife is featured and their stories are shared with the audience in an interactive manner which is safe and fun for the whole family.

The Zoo and Wildlife Biology program at Malone University is one of only a handful of its kind in the United States, and has gained national recognition for the preparation it gives students who want to pursue careers in zookeeping, conservation biology, wildlife rehabilitation and research, and veterinary medicine. Malone has professional partnerships with Cleveland Metroparks Zoo as well as with several local institutions including Stark Parks Sanders Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, William McKinley Presidential Museum’s Discover World, Wolf Timbers, and Quail Hollow State Park.

The show begins at 3 p.m. and is free and open to the public. Contact for additional information.
