    Hello fellow people of the internet. I finally decided to create an account after often visiting this website for several months. I'm a California high schooler and I have a great passion for animals (both extant and extinct). I love zoos and aquariums, I try to go a frequently as possible, and I wish to one day work at one. I've grown up with the Sacramento, Oakland, and San Francisco Zoos. I hope that by being on this site I can gain a new insight into the zoo world. I hope that I learn much but am also able to help others learn as well. I am very happy to have found a place of like minded people with a common interest. Have a good day. (P.S. while I love all animals, this may or may not be obvious but my favorite extant animal is the okapi).

    Welcome to Zoochat. I grew up with the Sacramento Zoo too. You've probably seen the news that okapis are headed your way.
