From it's humble beginnings in 1927 as a home for a few reindeer to more than 10,000 animals representing over 600 species from around the globe, the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium leads and inspires by connecting people and wildlife. As we approach the Zoo's 100th birthday, it remains a beloved community asset that has global impact, annually contributing more than $4 million of privately raised funds to support conservation projects worldwide. Dr. Michael Kreger will talk about where the Columbus Zoo has been and its progressive march to gaining an international reputation for excellence in animal care, conservation, and education.
