Hello, Posse!

Happy National Zoo Lovers Day! I always like to take the opportunity on days like today to promote some great places in my hometown of Wichita, Kansas. What better time to tell you about the Sedgwick County Zoo (SCZ) (<--- click to check out their site).

The SCZ is home to about 3,000 animals from almost 400 different species. The exhibits are set up based on a geographical basis and great care has been take to try to replicate the animals natural habitats as closely as is possible allowing the animals to enjoy their natural behaviors while providing visitors with and immersive experience.

From the SCZ website:

"Sedgwick County Zoo has been recognized with national and international awards for its support of field conservation programs and successful breeding of rare and endangered species. The Sedgwick County Zoo is a not-for-profit organization, accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). Look for the AZA logo whenever you visit a zoo or aquarium as your assurance that you are supporting a facility dedicated to providing excellent care for animals, a great experience for you, and a better future for all living things."
