The North Alabama Zoological Society (NALZS) is seeking high schools and home school co-ops within North Alabama school districts to help us offer a unique opportunity for high school students.

This program called the BioExploration Science Team

( formerly the Junior Zoological Society)  will help students learn to advocate for and implement conservation practices in our local area.

Students within BEST teams will gain practical life skills such as:

  • Public Speaking,

  • Advocacy,

  • Problem Solving, and

  • Leadership through guided local conservation projects and volunteerism.


These conservation projects will require students to utilize scientific and engineering practices, in addition to applying classroom learning to real world situations.


Please send Email to for more information and register for the virtual information session.
