Natural Learning

Americans have always been a curious lot and my daughter is no exception. Her ability to learn through experience shined through on a recent trip that included the Anchorage Zoo. This is her interpretation of the moose we saw on other parts of the trip. Zoos are an important part of sustainable interpretation of the wild. I also think she wanted to be a moose after experiencing them in the wild.
