    Earlier this summer I visited South America with a few friends, traversing Brazil, Bolivia and Peru (along with brief stopovers in Argentina and Paraguay). Along the way, I hoped to visit several zoos. Unfortunately, due to handicaps near the beginning and end of the trip (a friend was quite ill soon after arrival, and I broke my leg in a biking accident in Bolivia about two-thirds of the way through the trip) only a few were visited. Individual reports will follow, along with photos from each zoo. Just to offer an outline, these are the six zoological institutions I did manage to visit:

    RioZoo – Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
    Bosque das ciencias – Manaus, Brazil
    CIGS Zoo – Manaus, Brazil
    Santa Cruz Zoo – Santa Cruz, Bolivia
    Parque de las Leyendas (Legends’ Park) – Lima, Peru
    Huachipa Zoo – Lima, Peru

    I’m in the process of writing up reports and organising my photos. I’ll update this thread with any developments.

    It's been almost a year since my trip, so I'll be uploading some of my photos into the '- Other' galleries over the next few days.
