The San Diego Zoo

Olivia Smith Donovan, Bio-Inspired Designs Winner

Today we went to the San Diego Zoo’s main location and received a personal tour on a golf cart (which was really neat).   I was only about two feet from some tigers from Malaysia that were removed because people moved into their habitat, and apparently there is some sort of issue with villagers being attacked.  Anyway, I also got to feed llamas and camels which tickled.  And, no, the camels did not spit on me.

After the tour, we went to the polar bear exhibits where one was thrashing around in the water.  I’m concerned about polar bears in the wild because of the ice melting in their habitats with global warming.  So, I took a polar bear pledge online to reduce electricity usage and be energy wise in Delaware, because if you use more electricity, it contributes to global warming.  Around San Diego there seemed to be more of an issue with being “water wise” and all of the faucets turn off automatically.

There were two hippos but they both didn't fit in the shot.

I am so glad the camel did not spit on you!

Why do you think the people in San Diego are so “water wise” while we rarely think about it in Wilmington?
