    This was a very good program. Ms. Ryder brought a Zoo Docent with her and they answered every question we had about the Zoo. She gave a personal account of her research with Polar Bears and explained how zoos move animals around to ensure survival of the species. It was too bad that only 6 members showed up (3 of those were organizers) for this excellent presentation. You missed out!!
