When I was a teenager I had a map on my wall showing all the AZA zoos in the country. I thought I would work on visiting as many of those zoos as I could when I grew up and I eventually graduated with a Zoology major, anticipating that I would be a zookeeper. Approaching 40 years old, I haven’t visited close to as many zoos as I wanted, but for years I had this map in my mind with pins showing where I’ve been. I’ve listed below the zoos and aquariums I’ve visited, and provided links to blogs either talking about those zoos or showing pictures of my adventure. Feel free to follow along as I fill in the map and show you where I’ve been!
If you’d like to donate to my goal of visiting more zoos and aquariums around the country and shared my photos feel free to donate below. Then continue to enjoy and share in my animal adventures!
