"Sometimes it's not enough to hear a fact. You have to see it, experience it. Someone can tell you about survival. But seeing the unique ways that a fennec fox is built for the Sahara.. that's a lesson you won't forget."
- Dora Turner, Director
Our Zoo 2 You
Our story began more than three decades ago with the launch of the Two by Two Petting Zoo. There, with the help of animals like "Cookie" the zebra and "Rocko" the wallaby, Dora Turner (a former teacher) began teaching kids, families, and schools about the animal kingdom through interactive tours. That zoo grew into Noah's Landing, where Dora spent 15 years leading interactive tours and classroom programs across North Carolina.
When Dora retired in 2015, she launched "Our Zoo 2 You" to expand her reach into more classrooms across the state. Then and now, our belief has been the same: that kids learn best by experiences, that animals are a critical part of our wider world, and that kids and families will only protect what they understand and love.
Through "Our Zoo 2 You," we hope to continue building unique memories with our hands-on programming in schools, churches, and homes across North Carolina.
Let our crew be your guide to a unique and educational experience!
