Yesterday was Earth Day and it got me thinking about our fragile and beautiful world. I began to reminisce on my travels and before I knew it I was diving deep into my photo archives. I spent too much time looking at photos and reading my trip journals. Truth be told I have not been on an airplane since before Covid. Perhaps it is time to think about traveling once again. Some of todays photos are from Antarctica, the Arctic, Vietnam, Cambodia, China, Belize, Scotland, Thailand, India, Nepal, the Galapagos, Yellowstone in winter, Machu Picchu, Amsterdam and Muir Woods. I left out a whole bunch of other wonderful places we have visited because I was running out of time. Enjoy!

The Central Park Zoo’s  four sea lions – Scooter, April, Katie and Edith sure know how to leap, play, soar and move the crowds.  Here are just a few of their acrobatics.

If you like my photos and enjoy taking pictures yourself, why not come to the zoo for one of my photo workshops this spring? We have scheduled three workshops and you can read all about them and sign up on line here.

– One is a family program scheduled for Earth Day (Sunday, April 22nd from 10:00 to 11:30)) and is geared to adults and kids (ages 6 to 18). Share the joy of wildlife and photography with the family. It will be fun and you can take the memories home through your photos.

– On April14th (8:30 to 11:30) we are repeating our popular Breakfast With the Birds adult class where you will have the chance to hear all about our amazing collection and then are able to photograph the birds during morning census.  The class finishes up at the Apple store for a fabulous editing tutorial from the techies at Apple.

– And finally, a new workshop called Urban Birds of Prey on Sunday May 20th (9:00 to 11:00) where you will meet some of our raptor ambassadors up-close and personal. This will afford you great opportunities to photograph and learn about these beautiful birds. Looking forward to seeing some of you soon at the Zoo.
