“Virtual Zoo School” is New Way to Learn About Animals

“Virtual Zoo School” is New Way to Learn About Animals

first_imgBy MADDY VITALEThe Cape May County Zoo is normally open 364 days a year, closing only for Christmas. So, it was tough on the Zoo staff when they had to close to the public in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.The team there routinely welcomes schools and families from throughout the region to come learn about the animals and explore the many exhibits.But as schools have shifted online, so have the staffers at the Cape May County Zoo. The Virtual Zoo School is an initiative undertaken by the Zoo’s Education Department. Each day a lesson on a species of animal at the Zoo gets posted online. This is where the audience meets the animals like they never had before. “The staff at the Cape May County Zoo is always amazing me,” said Freeholder E. Marie Hayes, liaison to the Zoo. “We are all practicing social distancing. But this is a way to connect despite everything that is going on in the world. Our employees are once again going the extra mile, like they always do.”The lessons are posted daily at 11:30 a.m. on the Zoo’s Facebook page and on the Cape May County Government’s Zoo Website www.capemaycountynj.gov/1400/Virtual-Zoo-School. The public will get information on the animal’s adaptations, their conversation, some unique information about each individual animal, take home lessons, and unique activities for the children and adults. They will meet the Zoo’s animals, the educators, animal care staff, and will also get to see behind the scenes.“We have been hearing some overwhelming positive feedback via email and on social media about this new initiative,” said Hayes. “I want to especially credit Alex Ernest and Kendra Verity and the rest of the staff for finding a way to engage with the public when they can’t visit one of the best zoos in the world.” A link to the videos is available at https://www.capemaycountynj.gov/1400/Virtual-Zoo-School or at https://www.facebook.com/capemaycountyparkzoo/ Safety steps will protect both the zoo’s visitors and the animals.last_img read more

England Call up for Dele Alli

England Call up for Dele Alli

first_imgTottenham Hotspur forward Dele Alli has been named in England’s 26-man squad for their final two World Cup qualifiers against Slovenia and Lithuania in October, despite uncertainty over his availability for both matches.Alli is under investigation by FIFA for making an obscene gesture during England’s 2-1 win over Slovakia at Wembley last month and a lengthy ban would exclude him from both qualifiers.Manager Gareth Southgate said that Alli’s inclusion could backfire for England but remains hopeful that the 21-year-old will be available for the upcoming fixtures. “We have not heard anything at the moment from FIFA on Dele Alli. We run the risk of being a shambles because he might have to be withdrawn. We hope common sense prevails,” Southgate told reporters on Thursday.“I have had a good chat with Dele… He recognises the responsibility and we still have to qualify. We hope to have him available.”Southgate praised Alli’s Tottenham teammate Harry Kane, with the striker scoring five goals in his last four appearances for England.“I don’t know a better finisher at the moment. He has a real hunger and wants to be the best player in the world. Some do not have the commitment with their lifestyle, but he does. You want players who want to be the best,” Southgate added.Fellow striker Jamie Vardy was not included in the squad as he recovers from a hip injury and Southgate said that the 30-year-old had been playing through pain and would benefit from a rest during the two-week international break.Manchester City midfielder Fabian Delph, who last played for England in November 2015, was handed a surprise recall and is joined by Southampton goalkeeper Fraser Forster, who replaces Burnley’s Tom Heaton.England lead Group F on 20 points, five points ahead of second-placed Slovakia, and are one win away from sealing their spot in the 2018 World Cup in Russia.ENGLAND SQUAD:Goalkeepers: Joe Hart (West Ham United), Fraser Forster (Southampton), Jack Butland (Stoke City), Jordan Pickford (Everton)Defenders: Ryan Bertrand (Southampton), Aaron Cresswell (West Ham United), Gary Cahill (Chelsea), Phil Jones (Manchester United), Harry Maguire (Leicester City), John Stones (Manchester City), Michael Keane (Everton), Chris Smailling (Manchester United), Kyle Walker (Manchester City), Kieran Trippier (Tottenham Hotspur)Midfielders: Eric Dier (Tottenham Hotspur), Fabian Delph (Manchester City), Jake Livermore (West Bromwich Albion), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Raheem Sterling (Manchester City), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Liverpool), Jesse Lingard (Manchester United), Dele Alli (Tottenham Hotspur)Forwards: Marcus Rashford (Manchester United), Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur), Jermain Defoe (Bournemouth), Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool)Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
