I’m John Walczak, Director of your Louisville Zoo.
Summer fun is taking flight at the Louisville Zoo. I’ll be your guide
through this issue of Trunkline magazine, providing behind-the-scenes
insights and fun facts about your Zoo, conservation and our critical
efforts. Keep an eye out for the “Inside Your Zoo” and "Did You Know"

In this issue, you’ll read about:
