The Zoo recognizes that electronic devices such as cell phones and tablets are increasingly commonplace and are heavily used by visitors to the Zoo. These devices allow visitors to utilize phone services, take photos and videos, access social media, and utilize online services relating to the Zoo during their visits. Currently, there are no publically accessible places or outlets for visitors to charge their devices while at the Zoo. Through this pilot, five solar-powered mobile device charging stations would be installed to provide complimentary mobile device charging capability for Zoo visitors. These charging stations also sanitize the mobile devices while charging using UV-C light.
