Connections: This Summer At the Seneca Park Zoo

The Seneca Park Zoo is trying to educate their visitors in different ways this summer. They have a new tagline, and they’re hoping to move beyond “Hey, those orangutans are cool!” Instead, they’re trying to spur visitors to action after they leave the zoo, armed with new information about the habitats from which these animals come. So we’ll get a zoo education, and we’ll talk about the zoo’s future plans with our guests:

  • Pamela Reed Sanchez, executive director, Zoo Society
  • Pam Cowan, director of external affairs, Zoo Society
  • Larry Staub, Monroe County director of parks
  • Larry Sorel, zoo director
