      That's a lot of zoomaps!
      Must've been a long time since you started collecting them

      I've posted the breakdown of the top dozen nations (out of 52) that I have the most zoo maps from below. It's interesting to note that I've personally visited zoos in the U.S.A., Germany, Netherlands, Australia, France and Canada on the list, but the other 6 nations I've never even been to! I simply accumulate lots of 'doubles' and trade zoo maps with various other zoo nerds around the world.

      #1: U.S.A. – 576 zoo maps
      #2: England – 314
      #3: Germany - 213
      #4: Spain – 104
      #5: Netherlands – 90
      #6: Australia – 79
      #7: Czech. Rep. – 63
      #8: France – 51
      #9: Canada – 48
      #10: Belgium – 36
      #11: Poland – 34
      #12: Japan – 30

      The zoo that I have the most maps from is Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle, with 29 different zoo maps in my collection from that facility. The oldest is 1994 and usually the zoo puts out two maps per year (summer and winter).

      It'd be awesome if they could be digitized and uploaded to Zoochat. They'd be an unparalleled resource on the history of various zoos.
