Spring has sprung and the Central Park Zoo is lively and fun.  Come see another new baby mini-nubian goat named Barbara Rose and two adorable baby lambs.  If your timing is right you will also be able to see our male snow leopard, Bo, who made his public debut last week.

Wildlife Photography – New Price and an Additional Hour at the Apple Store

Some new and exciting news about this Spring’s photo class taking place at the Central Park Zoo on May 22nd.  We have added an additional hour to the class where we will take the short walk to the Apple Store on 5th Ave. and 59th St. for a private photo editing workshop with the Apple staff.  You’ll learn to edit your zoo photos and then engage in a group analysis of some of the participants’ photos.

In this class, taught by me, you’ll learn how to apply knowledge of animal behavior to wildlife photography to get the perfect shot. After reviewing some of the tricks of the trade while enjoying a continental breakfast, you will photograph the zoo animals in the spring weather –  all before the zoo opens. We will also have special animal guests and will stage some of our animals so that you can take their picture – all part of this unique experience. You’ll also have time to photograph the myriad of roses and peonies in the Central Garden. A collage of the best shots from each student will be emailed to the group. Personal digital camera required.

To see some of my photography, visit my website or take a look at the Winter Photography class photo album on the Central Park Zoo Facebook Page.

Date & Time: Sunday, May 22 9:00 – noon
Fee: $60 members, $70 non-members

Registration will be accepted via the web only. No drop-in or phone registration will be accepted. If you have any questions regarding registration or programs, please contact the registrar at cpzregistration@wcs.org or call 212-439-6583 and press option 4.

Yes, more snow fell on the already snow covered Big Apple but at the Central Park Zoo it just gets more fun for the residents (and me).  I never tire of watching our cold weather loving animals romping in the snow. Enjoy this week’s photo montage and don’t forget to watch the delightful time lapse video below by my good friend and my frequent road trip zoo nut, Mary Schwalm .

The lure of freshly fallen snow and seeing three eight month old tiger cubs frolicking was too much for us to ignore.  So we hopped up to the Bronx Zoo yesterday and had a snow-sational time.  Don’t forget to watch the tiger cub video below today’s snow montage. Zootastic!

It was a big and beautiful snowfall on December 27th (as long as you did not have to shovel or drive).  The Central Park Zoo was closed for one day as the hard and hearty zoo workers dug out the zoo environs.  The zoo reopened on the 28th and the animals went wild in the freshly fallen snow.  It was zootastic! Don’t forget to watch two snow videos below today’s montage.

I continue my tradition of ending the year with a look from ‘behind’. It was a zoo-sational year for a zoo nut like me.  Along with some of my like minded zoo pals we were able to visit new zoos and places around the country and thanks to many wonderful new friends get some amazing behind the scenes access.  If you missed some of the visits, check out my photos from the Everglades, the Palm Beach Zoo, the Miami Metro Zoo, Flamingo Gardens, the Cleveland MetroParks ZooThe Akron Zoo, The Toldedo Zoo, The Erie Zoo, The Pittsburgh Zoo and a personal favorite there, the Polar Bear Plunge, The Columbus Zoo, The Louisville Zoo, The Cincinnati Zoo and the best Insect House anywhere, The Newport Aquarium, Pittsburgh’s National Aviary, the always wonderful San Francisco Zoo, a very worthwhile VIP tour of Six Flags Wild Safari, Southwick’s Zoo, Whale and Dolphin watching, out of Gloucester, MA, the Cape May Zoo, the Raptor Trust, the Philadelphia Zoo, and of course home base, the Central Park Zoo where we all met the newest residents, the Mountain Coatis, Lobo, Lev and Wolfie .  I am looking forward to new Zoo adventures in 2011. Don’t forget to watch Gus, the polar bear enjoying some snow in my video below.

A visit to the Central Park Zoo always brings something new.  Check out the three week old adorable Mini Nubian goat named Spot.  He resides at the Tisch Children’s Zoo with his mother, Monique and several other goats.  Mini Nubians are a cross between Nigerian dwarf and full-sized Nubian goats.  If you get lucky you might also see the new Peregrine Falcon, Sierra, as she strolls around the Central Garden with one of her handlers. Go to the Tropic Zone to warm up and you will see six new Whistling ducks in the beach area along with two White-winged Wood ducks. Look further in the Temperate Zone for our new cranes as well. Come visit soon.  To see these photos larger, click here.

If you did not pick up your Happy Holidays card from Casa Lobo to your house please click here.  You can get to see my adorable (and cooperative dog, Benny along with my not so cooperative cat, Madison).
