JJ PivoSuch good info! And I was about to share until I saw plugs for big corporations. Does the zoo receive incentives for mentioning them? If so it should be noted. And if not, how about creating a page that shows off all the organizations that are doing the right things? Celebrate them all, regardless if revenues or influence.17 hours ago
