One of my favorite books as a kid was ‘ A Tree Grows in Brooklyn’ by Betty Smith. Today’s photo montage salutes the Prospect Park Zoo which grows (just like that tree) with each of my visits. I have mentioned that the Prospect Park Zoo was my childhood zoo and it still holds a special place in my heart. Go visit!

Thought I would share some of my very favorite faces that I work with at the Central Park Zoo. Their beauty makes my job simple.

Winter gave us one last gasp of cold, wind and snow this week. The animals at the Central Park Zoo did not mind at all. Come visit before it all melts away.

6389snoqAll WCS zoos were closed on February 9th during the snowstorm. I was at the zoo bright and early the next day to catch our amazing collection as they emerged from their holding areas to see the freshly fallen snow. What fun.cpzsnow2-2017
