I hadn’t been to the Bronx Zoo in about a year and decided to head a bit north for a visit. This large zoo never disappoints. It is difficult to visit every habitat (but I sure did try). I missed a few key areas but will return soon.

The heat was surely on these last couple of weeks in NYC. It seemed to be a good idea to spend some of my time chilling with the penguins at the Central Park Zoo. Our zoo has four species of penguin – King, Gentoo, Macaroni and Chinstrap. The exhibit is chilly and fun. Come visit and stay cool with our fine feathered friends. Also wanted to give you a heads up about our Central Park Zoo Fall Photo Experience. It is ‘live’ on the WCS website now. The session which will feature pumpkins and is called Zoo Views: Animals in Autumn: Sun, Oct 27, 2019 8:30AM – 10:30AM. It is my favorite photo class and time of the year. Hope to see you in the fall. Click here to sign up

This was a fun montage to create. I didn’t realize how many animals could be included in this red, white and blue themed photo montage. Most of the animals depicted were taken at my home base, the Central Park Zoo. Obvious exclusions are the giant panda, cassowary (above) and the arctic fox (although we used to house that species) and the red-eyed tree frog (taken at the Prospect Park Zoo). Hope you all have a very safe and happy Fourth of July.

A recent trip to visit old friends in Toledo and South Bend, Indiana was loads of fun. Our friend, Josh Sisk is now acting director at the Potawatomi Zoo and is doing an amazing job. What a fun visit and reunion.  This 23 acre facility is beautiful – with a varied and interesting collection. The sightlines are wonderful and the habitats are large and user friendly to the visitor. They have eight species of primates, four species of big cats, Sichuan Takins (with two babies), camels, okapis and much more. There is something new and fascinating around every corner. Thank you Josh for your generosity and time. We loved our visit and will be back for sure.

Last Sunday’s photo enrichment session at the Central Park Zoo was lots of fun for both the animals and photographers. It was a glorious day. The sun was out, the temperature ideal and the animals all set to be enriched. A special shout out to our amazing zookeepers who created the enrichment items. Enjoy!

As most of you know, the Central Park Zoo is my home base. While fall is my favorite season I admit to being captivated with spring too. Our cool, rainy weather has made everything green and colorful. Today is our final zoo photo session of the season featuring flowers as animal enrichment. I am optimistic it will be a successful, fun visit for all. Photos, next week.

We headed south for a day trip to the Philadelphia Zoo this week. Other than the enormous crowds (who knew it would be crowded on a Tuesday)? –  we had a fun visit. Many additions and upgrades were noted, including the repurposed polar bear exhibit which is now inhabited by penguins. Also we noticed many more bird habitats, tree top trails and food options. The Philadelphia Zoo is always a fun visit.

March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. Enjoy some of these sweet lambs in today’s photo montage. All of these photos were taken at my home base, the Central Park Zoo. Sorry to say they have all grown up now but I remember them as they were – so very cute.
