Closeups at the zoo

Just a few highlights from our annual trip to the Henry Doorly Zoo. The gorillas always love to scare onlookers, the tiger gets up close and personal but, my fav was the monkey nativity scene :)

Seriously though, zoos often get criticized for all sorts of reasons and should be held to strict standards, but, I like to support their conservation efforts. The Henry Doorly, for example, has helped save many species of plants and animals from extinction and has lead education efforts to help indigenous people conserve their lands and curb deforestation in places like Madagascar.

Anyway, enjoy!
