    More of the zoo

    2010 - 05.18

    The Polar Bear exhibit is still drawing throngs of people. It really is amazing standing in the downstairs viewing area as the bears swim past the window and over your head. Strollers are shoved to the glass, cell phone camera’s are thrust overhead and into or past other heads, much like Bic lighters at concerts. After some time, children are rounded up and herded up the stairs to assault other exhibits, and peace returns to the glass enclosure. I watched an interview on one of the morning shows in which Jack Hanna spoke of going down there at night when all was quiet, and watching the bears. I was more than a little envious. Nothing against the little crumb munchin, germ carriers, it’s kind of fun to listen to them and hear their stories. It’s their interest that will help preserve and protect our natural resources, and for that, I’m thankful for our programs and for our zoo. The brown bears made out with the new polar frontier addition as well. They have a beautiful new habitat that includes a large pool of water with waterfalls. click on image to see the bears.
