I've been lurking on the site for almost a year, so I'd figure I'd join in finally. I'm a 17 year old zoo volunteer (and enthusiast of course) from Wheeling, West Virginia. I'm not sure how many users have been associated with the Good Zoo in Oglebay Park (the only AZA accredited zoo in the state), but I'm sure there's not many. Even though I live in a rather unpopulated state with very few zoological attractions, it puts me in a good position to visit other, larger, more well known ones across the east and midwest. Examples being Brookfield, Bronx, Columbus, Philadelphia. I'm hoping to get into a career involving ecology or paleontology of some description. Therefore, I think this will be a good way to to share my insights as well as maybe learn some things as well.
