Some who are social distancing are probably looking for a way to make virtual meetups with friends and colleagues a bit more fun. Miami’s Jungle Island has just the answer.
The eco-adventure park has just introduced a way to invite a special guest to your next meeting on Zoom, Google Hangouts, GoToMeeting or Houseparty. For $100, Jungle Island will give you the choice to virtually meet a baby capuchin monkey, a giant Aldabra tortoise, a pink flamingo or a goat. The meeting also includes educational fun facts. Plus, all proceeds support the animal’s feeding and caring.
“There is nothing like animal therapy to brighten someone’s mood especially while having to social distance and work-from-home,” says Curtis Crider, Jungle Island’s president and managing director. “We look forward to educating the public about various animal species and to being the life of the party at virtual work meetings and happy hours.”
After the meet-up, continue the fun with Jungle Island’s weekly Facebook Live #ChatswithChatfield with veterinarian Dr. Jason Chatfield (3:30 p.m. every Thursday). Jungle Island’s Facebook and Instagram pages are also offering online assignments for children 5 to 12.
