A photo exhibition and story safari Click to enlarge Look for signs featuring head-turning photos at habitats throughout the Zoo now through the end of October. Each photo is of an animal that has touched Cincinnati Zoo Director and Chief Storyteller Thane Maynard in a special way. Use the QR code on each sign to hear Thane tell a story about the animal you see. “The purpose of the zoo is to tell the story of wildlife and nature, and why they are so valuable to us all. So, in the spirit of Jane Goodall and my little daily public radio program, “The 90-Second Naturalist,” I am sharing a personal story about each of ten of the Zoo’s animals who have touched my life in my time here at the Zoo. This is my, and the Zoo’s, way of acknowledging the power and importance of the individual animals that touch us all. These shared, storied moments give me hope in a challenging time.” – Thane Maynard Join us October 26 for Thane Maynard’s Night of Stories. Thane is the ultimate storyteller and has collected tales, some tall and some small, in his 40 years at the Zoo that few have ever heard. Reserve your seat today and prepare to sit on the edge of it!
