Wild Animal Park

Wow!  We had a great time at the WAP!  The mammal dept at the WAP has “adopted” our school, and recently gave us the ultimate tour!  We started off at the Vet hospital, we toured the OR, some recovery areas, the X-Ray room…we even viewed X-rays with one of the Vets.  We toured the lab, and looked at different samples through microscopes.  After an extensive tour of the hospital, it was on to the Gorilla encloser.  We were allowed to go “behind the scenes” and tour the gorilla sleeping areas, and ask several questions to the keeper.  Finally, we toured the nursery, and learned a lot about young animals at the park…the day was amazing!  Thank you Wild Animal Park!!!

Check out the pics!
