Last Sunday’s Valentine Tails photo class was a big hit. Everyone had a good time, great photos were taken and most of all, the animals at the Central Park Zoo got terrific heart themed enrichment created by an amazing zoo keeper staff (special shout out to Nora and Tumeca). Despite the cold weather there were smiles all around. Enjoy today’s heartfelt photos and hopefully you will sign up for the last photo class of the season. It is going to be held on Sunday, May 19 from 8:30 to 10:30. It is already half filled. Click here for more info.

As some of you know, Brooklyn’s Prospect Park Zoo was my childhood zoo and every time I return I get a flashback or two. This week’s visit was no different. I encourage a winter visit. Several new and exciting things to see including the fabulous Pallas Cats and Black-footed cats.
There are a few spots available for my photo workshop at the Central Park Zoo in three weeks. It is called Valentine Tails and will be from 8:30 to 10:30 on February 10, 2019 (think hearts.) The workshop is filling up fast. Click here to sign up.
For those that watched Animal Planet’s series, THE ZOO last year – the show is returning, with all new WCS episodes, on February 10 at 8PM. You might even see some people you know on the episodes. Read about it here.

Yes, I know it is still summer, but the days are getting shorter and fall will soon be upon us. We are off on Zoocation in a few days. It is the un-official 10th anniversary of Zoocation. It all started in 2008 in Omaha when we went to a wonderful wedding and decided we should hit as many zoos as possible in the area. We have criss-crossed North America in search of new zoos to explore. It has been a fun, exhilarating adventure. We’ve traveled thru New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Vermont, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Wisconsin, Texas, Colorado, Utah, California, New Mexico, Arizona, Georgia, Washington, DC, Virginia, Maryland, Illinois, Washington, Nevada, Louisiana, Tennessee, Missouri, Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, Maine, Rhode Island, Michigan, Kentucky, Florida and Canada.  I have most likely left out a few states and my Zoocation pal, Mary Schwalm will let me know which ones I missed – but you get the idea. We have met some incredible people, had unforgettable animal encounters  and look forward to this next adventure. Thank you all for coming along on our journey. See you zoon.

May’s mini-zoocation continued with a visit to the delightful Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo in Ft Wayne, Indiana. The zoo is a perfect size with a varied and interesting collection of animals. The site lines are terrific and there is something around each bend on the road to surprises. A big shout out to Ann Barker and Director Jim Anderson for making our visit so memorable.

airborne-cubThis fun photo montage is one of my all time favorites. Coincidentally, I first posted it three years ago today. I am also pleased to report that I am returning to the Central Park Zoo this week with camera in hand. Thank you for all of your kind words about my knee surgery and recovery during these past nine weeks. airborne

BettyAs most of you know, on the first day of spring we got four inches of snow in the Big Apple.  I thought it was a good time to share some of the last snowy day zoo photos for awhile (I hope).LASTGASP
