In 1999, I bought a digital camera and discovered that, to spread the word about my favorite zoo, a picture was indeed worth a thousand words. So I created this website, and added new editions to it each year (for ten years!).
In August, 2008, I also began videorecording some of the fascinating, educational, thought-provoking, inspirational, and funny happenings at the Zoo and discovered that a video is worth an infinite number of words.
So starting in 2011, I focused mostly on My YouTube "I love the Philadelphia Zoo" channel ZooVisitorMM, which now has more than 2500 videos recorded in the Philadelphia Zoo.
I also feature videos, photos, and commentary about zoos on my Facebook "I love zoos! personal page, which can be viewed by anyone who has a Facebook account.
The Philadelphia Zoo has changed a lot during the past five years. You can see many of the changes by watching my videos and you can see what I think of those changes by looking at my Facebook page posts.
But you can also see the changes yourself by visiting the Zoo - And I hope you will, soon and often!
