Little Ray’s mission is to bring the extraordinary natural world into a personalized experience for each of your guests.  Staffed by trained and dynamic educators and zookeepers, guests enjoy an immersive world class adventure through scheduled educational presentations, impromptu animal interactions, and tailored one-on-one conversations. Our exhibits are built on the foundations of our guiding values: animal welfare, education, and excellence.  Each exhibit supports museums, science centers and natural history institutions in building lasting unique encounters that appeal to existing visitors and draw new visitors to their venues. ​
