How was Zoolife founded?

Both founded and based in Canada, Zoolife was born from its parent company: Brizi. They came up with an innovative way to control cameras for game-changing selfies and snapshots at sport events. As a result, the same cameras are also set up in stadiums all around the world. This helps viewers share their sporting experiences now connect wildlife and humans in the world’s first digital zoo.

Zoolife reached out to the Toronto Zoo at the start of the pandemic to help connect its audience through a virtual setting and offered a way to help their viewers stream their exhibits while maintaining social distancing. The service started off with a livestream of the Toronto Zoo’s giraffe habitat. It was originally hosted on Twitch before it expanded into more habitats and wildlife to the catalog Zoolife boasts today.

Today, the service has expanded to its own website and has partnered with two zoos, a wildlife park and two rescues: Toronto Zoo, Santa Barbara Zoo, Orana Wildlife Park, the Pacific Marine Mammal Center, and the Phoenix Herpetological Society. Additionally, Zoolife now hosts 22 exhibits and daily zookeeper talks and plans to expand to even more exhibits and partners in the future!
