Best Friends at the Bronx Zoo
- as seen by -Geaner Parkes
The California sea lions at the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Bronx Zoo make such a welcoming sound when I arrive at work each day. I can hear them as soon as I pull into the parking lot. Their barks get louder as I approach the pool as if they know I am coming to see them to say hello. Watching them splash in the cool water and frolic without a care in the world brings a smile to my face.
How I wish I could join them.
But alas, I bid them goodbye until my lunch break. Even though I share them with a host of zoo visitors, we always have our private moments each morning. I look forward to it.
