The Sternberg Museum's Animal Ambassadors

Our animal ambassadors are individual animals that are often tame or trained and used to educate the public. These animals can represent their species during educational tours or when traveling to schools. Our ambassadors are important to help us connect the public to their wild relatives and the wonderful things they do for us, or the issues they face, so that we can help them. These animals are often fed or handled during school programs and educational talks. This allows children and adults hands-on experience to help better understand why these animals are so important in environmental conservation.
