News and Announcements

Our school has been working with the Rainforest Connection (RFCx), an organization that builds auditory monitoring devices from old cell phones, installs them in rainforests to detect the sounds of illegal logging, then alerts rangers to stop deforestation in real time.  The guardians built by Zoo Magnet students are currently in Brazil.  On April 22nd, RFCx Founder, Topher White and his team will turn on the Guardian devices live... and you’re invited!  

Date: Sunday, April 22, 2018

Time: 12:00 pm - 3pm (Plan to be at the Zoo at 11:30am)

Location: LA Zoo’s Witherbee Auditorium


Attendance is limited to 100 people and Zoo Magnet students will earn 3 hours of service.
