A Community Tradition Continues
Central Indiana has an amazing collection
of world-class teams, from the Pacers, Colts, Indians and Fever, to
the storied college athletic programs of IU, Purdue and Butler, to
the local high school sports events that bring communities together.
Now, the Indianapolis Zoo would like to introduce you to the newest
team in town ‒ the Indianapolis Orangutans. You won’t see them on the
basketball court or the football field, but this team will inspire
you with their ability to make you laugh, experience the wonder of
the animal world and maybe even look at yourself in a whole new way!
Take the quiz to find out
which member of the team is most like you.
Teachers: Would your class like to join the New Team?
Our school program includes grades K-8
Academic Standards-based activities and resources designed to
introduce your students to the world of orangutans. Topics such as
orangutan basics, orangutan learning, life in the rainforest, and
endangered species will be presented in fun and engaging ways.
Classes participating in the optional fundraising program can even
compete for a chance to come to the exhibit before it opens to the
public! Complete the
School Registration Form, save the file and send as an

Kerry Tuttle for more information.
