Two Happy Travelers


On one of our road trips out of Santa Fe, we met these two volunteers, Mary and Virginia,  who travel around the state to libraries, community centers and schools giving presentations for the Bio Grande Zoo, an educational arm of the Albuquerque Zoo. We learned that sometimes they are gone for several days, doing what they both love best.  Far removed from their former professions, both are  happily retired while acting as educators for people who are interested in animals.  Tomorrow I'll give you a peek at what's in the van!

  4. Worthwhile volunteerism. I hope the van keeps the animals at a comfortable temperature.

    I commented on my post today that there is an effort in Costa Rica to prohibit zoos so that animals are observed only in their natural habitats. Lots of people would miss out on enjoying and educating themselves about animals from that approach.

    1. I just read your comments on your blog today. Hope that there is some consideration to include an educational component for students.
