Watching the wildlife

We popped in for a quick visit at the zoo on Saturday. Like every other local, we wanted an outdoor activity to take advantage of what felt like the first real day of spring.

Waiting in line turned into a treasure hunt.



In addition to the really funny giraffes (see below), the other animals were enjoying the weather as much as the humans.





We are really particular about patronizing any facility or event that makes money from animals. I rely heavily on accreditation by the AZA. (If you know me, that goes without saying.) This zoo is one that is accredited and has made vast strides over the years. Animal welfare, breeding programs, conservation, etc., are paramount. End of my PSA for today.
