That is what the zoo brings us" --Studs Terkel "One of the greatest rewards of having a zoo of Lincoln Park's caliber is its commitment to not only educate locally, but to contribute to the understanding of animal behavior on the global level, in order to create a more sustainable future for the earth's wildlife." --Bill Kurtis, environmental documentary producershow more
