Virtual Zoos Printable (** for premium members only)

June is National Zoo and Aquarium month, and we are going on a virtual zoo hop. I hope you enjoy the lions and tigers and bears, oh my!

Houston Zoo
Best clicks for virtual visitors are found under Meet the Animals and Exhibits. Click around and you’ll find articles about Animal Art, Animal Care, and a whole section on animal conservation. “In recent years, conservation biologists have drawn our attention to a worldwide decline in wild populations of frogs, toads, and salamanders – “ a phenomenon that has come to be called the Global Amphibian Crisis.”

Lincoln Park Zoo: Animals
In addition to an annotated photo gallery of animals (listed under Animals in the main navigation menu) also check the Magazine section. Lincoln Park Zoo offers PDF versions of their quarterly magazine that is chock full of interesting articles on animal behavior and conservation studies. Also listed under Magazine, you’ll find movies and slideshows. Don’t miss Feline and Dandy, two “impressive residents” of the Kovler Lion House.

Los Angeles Zoo: Animals & Plants
Places to explore in the LA Zoo Animals & Plants section include Animal Facts (“Birds are the only vertebrates that have feathers. All birds are warm-blooded, and they lay eggs.”), Animal Health, the Elephants of Asia, and the Campo Gorilla Reserve. “Gorillas are the strongest and largest of the great apes, a primate group that also includes chimpanzees, bonobos, and orangutans. ”
