    The only drawback with that system is that you can't blame the computer.

    I just tried again and now the credit card payment option has disappeared. The only payment option is PayPal. However I got a personal email from them stating I could order either by mailing payment or sending credit card info directly via email (split into two emails for security).

    I have a seldom used PayPal account and was pleasantly surprised to see it had enough funds for the IZES membership and one back issue. So I was able to sign up that way and am now the newest member of IZES.

    I've tried to join twice, but it wouldn't accept my card and I never use PayPal so I haven't a clue what my password is!!

    Hopefully the problems with the website have now been resolved.

    The 50th issue of Zoo Grapevine (Spring 2019) has just been published, and is as excellent as ever.

    There are three feature articles:

    • A fantastically-illustrated history of Quaggas in captivity, by Erik Block
    • An overview of the work undertaken by Cologne Zoo’s herpetology department, by Tim Brown
    • A review of the zoos of Ohio, by John Tuson
    In addition, zoo news, book reviews, an interesting short article about Purple-throated Fruitcrows, and a catalogue of recently-published articles in various zoo publications.

    Tremendous stuff, as always!

    I have sent a couple of emails now regarding my subscription without getting a reply, does anyone know what the best way of contacting them is?

    I thought the only photos of live Quaggas in Zoos/captivity were the five taken at London Zoo. Does this article include others?

    Indeed, the only known photos of a living quagga are those of the London Zoo mare that died in 1872 (and which can be seen mounted in the Edinburgh Museum).

    The article does include photos of various museum quaggas though.

    Issue 53 of Zoo Grapevine (now combined with International Zoo News) has just been published.

    It includes a piece on Giza Zoo by the venerable Ken Kawata, the equally venerable Bob Golding on African Forest Elephants, and a personal account of Burgers Zoo by Roxanne Newton-Crump (a keeper - although I don’t know where). There’s also an excellent editorial by @Tim Brown, exploring the rather strange recent pronouncements of old friend Damian Aspinall, as well as zoo news, book reviews, and the usual list of recent articles - as well as an interesting short piece on Mexican Horned Pit-vipers....
