New Zoo Blogger Policy – Welcome, Writers!

Each year, Scovill Zoo is contacted by freelance writers and bloggers/vloggers looking to cover the zoo on their various media platforms.  We would like to consider any and all media requests that would be mutually beneficial.  If you have an interesting story or topic in mind, tell us about it.  Please submit a written proposal no less than five business days prior to your proposed visit to:


Your proposal should include the following:

  • Story topics for an article or blog/vlog that includes the target audience and demographics you reach
  • Links to your articles or blog/vlog posts pertaining to how Scovill Zoo would be featured
  • Statistics of your followers broken down by platform (i.e. subscribers for your publication or blog/vlog, as well as followers on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, etc.)
  • Date(s) your story/post will likely be published

Complimentary Tickets

Should your story idea or blog/vlog post be deemed mutually beneficial for both parties, Scovill Zoo will provide up to four complimentary admission tickets to the zoo.  Tickets will be provided not more than once in a 12-month period per writer/blogger/vlogger. Other requests for your visit should be included within your proposal for consideration. Thank you for your interest in Scovill Zoo!
