Zoos in the USA

We volunteer at the National Zoo in Washington D.C. and enjoy visiting other ZOOs around the world. We have visited over 96 zoos since 1996 and each one contributes in their unique way to the education of the public about animals and work diligently to save endangered species. The Think Tank at the National Zoo, where we primarily volunteer, is an exciting exhibit where the orang utans have access to a cable line allowing them to travel above the visitors to another building. Here is a picture of Indah sitting on the platform with her hand on the cable.

When Carolyn retired from the National Institutes of Health, a National Zoo comemorative tile was donated in her name.
