Lion Country officials teamed up Friday with producers for the television show, which airs on ABC stations nationwide, to take a group of New Jersey students on a virtual field trip to meet Cupid, on of the park’s giraffes.

With the help of Microsoft, sixth graders from Tuckerton Elementary in New Jersey learn about animal adaptation in up close encounters with the park’s animals, according to Jennifer Berthiaume, Lion Country’s public relations and marketing director.

The segment is expected to air on April 2, 2016 on ABC stations nationwide.
