 We are starting to put the green in the Zoo's new green space and event lawn! Trees and plants have gone in this past week, which means we are getting closer to opening! Thank you for your patience as we work to Renew the Zoo. ( by Marcia Riedmiller) #instagrambham
 African penguins are in peril. Where once there were over one million breeding pairs of penguins, now there are only about 25,000. And if we don’t act right now, we could lose the species entirely to extinction. #InvestInTheNest and help save penguins from extinction!

 We are working hard to put the finishing touches on what hopes to be the best summer camp ever! We hope to see you soon! #TakeoverTuesday - Heather Richardson, Camps Coordinator
 I work with many of the animal departments to give campers a one of a kind zoo experience. The most enjoyable animal activity seems to be when the Zoo Keeper Camp goes behind the scenes with the Reptile Department. They create some very interesting enrichment for the Komodo Dragon. It has become so popular that our camp teachers usually plan their day around this activity. It’s very exciting to watch. #TakeoverTuesday - Heather Richardson, Camps Coordinator
 Next, I need to pick up snacks. As you can imagine, we go through lots of snacks per week. Here I am with a carload of snacks for the first week. #TakeoverTuesday - Heather Richardson, Camps Coordinator
