    From the article:
    To garner financial support, zoo officials have produced promotional videos of the state agency’s grounds and animals. One 4.5-minute video flashes scenes ranging from the zoo’s 1978 opening to today, utilizing treetop-clearing drones to illustrate the evolution of a “world class” destination.

    Anyone know where the 4.5 minute video can be seen?

    This is amazing! I haven't been to the Minnesota Zoo in a very long time, are there any new exhibits that have been built in the past few years?
