The Woodland Park Zoo has changed a lot since I was a kid, growing into an animal-friendly wildlife park that preserves the inhabitants' natural environments. There are regional groupings, including an African savannah, Asian rain forest, and the northern US wilderness. The elephant exhibit is wonderful, and they just had a baby delivered. When I recently visited the Bronx zoo heer in New York, I was surpised to find the zoos very similar in size and make-up. Then I learned that the same conservation group runs both zoos, and many more throughout the world.
