Safari Park Memorabilia on Display

On February 23, we had the pleasure of sharing a sampling of Safari Park historical memorabilia at Bob McClure's retirement party. Can you find the 25th anniversary pin and a piece of the original monorail track? When they're not traveling, these items — and many more — enjoy a secure home in the SDZG Library's Archives.

Book of the Month

The Ark and Beyond (cover image)

The Ark and Beyond :
The Evolution of Zoo and Aquarium Conservation


Edited by Ben A. Minteer, Jane Maienschein, and James P. Collins (2018)

Scores of wild species and ecosystems around the world face a variety of human-caused threats, from habitat destruction and fragmentation to rapid climate change. But there is hope, and it, too, comes in a most human form: zoos and aquariums.

Gathering a diverse, multi-institutional collection of leading zoo and aquarium scientists as well as historians, philosophers, biologists, and social scientists, The Ark and Beyond traces the history and underscores the present role of these organizations as essential conservation actors. It also offers a framework for their future course, reaffirming that if zoos and aquariums make biodiversity conservation a top priority, these institutions can play a vital role in tackling conservation challenges of global magnitude. — Publisher.
