Do you get a summer vacation? Does it begin in June? Although my work doesn’t include an official summer vacation, I am taking several trips, including a two-week trip to Israel at the end of June. I hope your summer is filled with family, friends, and good health.
See ya on the Net,

June is National Zoo and Aquarium month, and today we are going on a virtual zoo hop. I hope you enjoy the lions, and tigers, and bears, oh my!
Houston Zoo: Our Animals
“The Houston Zoo is home to over 6,000 animal residents, with more than 600 different species. These are just a few of the many animals we care for here and help save in the wild.” Navigate through the Houston Zoo by animal (displayed in a grid of tiled images) or filter your view by exhibit, such as African Forrest or Reptile and Amphibian House.
Lincoln Park Zoo: All Animals and Exhibits
In addition to browsing the annotated animal photo gallery (which is appropriate for all ages), older students can explore the Conservation & Science section about international effects by Lincoln’s scientists to “identify threats to zoo and wild populations and develop strategies to ensure their continued existence.” For example, the Goualougo Triangle Ape Project is studying gorillas and chimpanzees in a remote part of the Republic of Congo.
Los Angeles Zoo: Animals & Plants
Amphibians, birds, invertebrates, mammals, and reptiles are all on display at the LA Zoo, along with a botanical garden. Other sections on my do-not-miss list are Rainforest of the Americas and Elephants of Asia. “Elephants of Asia is designed to increase appreciation, amazement, and wonder for these great animals and to familiarize guests with the challenges Asian elephants face in the wild, including their shrinking natural habitat.”
