Oakland, CA – In order to address two challenges facing Oakland Zoo during the COVID-19 closure, a new subscription-based live-streaming and interactive service will now be offered to provide the public a way to connect with animals and staff on while also bringing in much-needed revenue to the Zoo.

The new platform / service titled “Behind the Scenes Live” allows subscribers sign up today, with the first live-streaming broadcast premiering on April 2.

The live broadcasts will be at 2:30pm (PST) every weekday and feature a host interviewing a variety of animal keepers and veterinary hospital staff with different animals. The interactive component allows subscribers to direct message questions during the broadcast and in real-time, so they can be answered immediately. The service is priced at $14.95 per month, with Zoo members receiving the first 30-days free followed by a $9.95 discounted monthly fee.

Without the admission revenue that makes up for 80% of its operating budget, the Zoo hopes that the revenue from the new subscription service will also help offset layoffs and reduced work hours for staff, of which first rounds began today, on April 1.
