It is time for Vee's monthly note card party, where bloggers chose four photographs that they previously used in a blog post that they feel would be nice to turn into note cards. I decided to share some majestic animal portraits I made in Taronga Zoo, Mosman NSW, Australia in 2011. You can see that post, and many more animal photos from that magnificent zoo on this link.
Taronga Zoo is home to over 2,600 animals on 52 acres (21 hectares), making it one of the largest of its kind. The zoo places emphasis on the promotion of world wildlife conservation. Since 2008 the Taronga Foundation has spent over $200,000 helping protect endangered species in the wild, helping save and regenerate natural habitats and working with local communities to reduce conflict with wildlife. 2010 was earmarked as the International Year of Biodiversity where the Taronga Conservation Society supported nine projects focusing on education, anti-poaching, population management, wildlife health and habitat restoration. These projects are taking place in Australia, India, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Fiji, Nepal, Tanzania and Zambia and will help protect the habitat, health and safety of a variety of animals. You can see a full list of all the animals living at the zoo at this link.
I really enjoyed visiting this zoo and I think a wonderfully expressive animal face note card would be a fun card to receive. What do you think? You can check out Vee's and see links to all the other note card selections over at A Haven For Vee blog beginning at 8:30 PM EST Tuesday evening. Why not post your own card selections, link up, and join in all the fun?
I'm also linking up with "Outdoor Wednesday," Jenny Matlock's "Alphabe Thursday" -- the letter this week is "E" -- endangered animals fits the bill, and "Camera Critters Saturday."
Many thanks to all the blog hosts!
