The Ark in Park THE STORY OF LINCOLN PARK ZOO Press Reviews

Lincoln Park Zoo is a Chicago treasure. For more than a century Chicago families have come here to relax, enjoy themselves, and learn more about animals. By staying free and accessible to all, the Lincoln Park Zoo serves as a vital anchor in Chicago. --Mayor Richard M. Daley When we look at the primates, we kind of see our own emotions. We look at our fellow creatures that inhabit the earth and realize how incredible nature is. That is what the zoo brings us --Studs Terkel One of the greatest rewards of having a zoo of Lincoln Park's caliber is its commitment to not only educate locally, but to contribute to the understanding of animal behavior on the global level, in order to create a more sustainable future for the earth's wildlife. --Bill Kurtis, environmental documentary producer
