Scholars Go to the Zoo

You are never to old to go to the playground at the Zoo!

One of the wonderful opportunities of being a scholar is that the groups organize trips. My scholars group adviser organized for the Biological Sciences Scholars to go to the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. We could sign up for one of two behind the scenes tours. The tour that I went on got to go behind the scenes of Manatee Cove. In Manatee Cove are manatees, rays, a sea turtle(I may be mistaken!), ducks, and lots of fish. Only one of the manatees is life long resident, the others are just there for rehabilitation. Once they are rehabilitated they will go down to a release are in Florida. I really enjoyed the trip because it was very fun to learn about how a zoo works and the Columbus Zoo does a lot of great things for wildlife.
