A wildlife blessing
The reopening of Lincoln Park Zoo, Brookfield Zoo and the Shedd Aquarium is great news for people who appreciate the most magnificent creatures of the land and the seas. There is overwhelming proof that interacting with animals is both emotionally and physically therapeutic for humans. Our zoos and the Shedd are friendly confines for many of the world's most exquisite and exotic wildlife to ever inhabit the earth. These majestic creatures are treated with the utmost compassion by passionate staff members. The Chicago metropolitan area and surrounding counties are blessed to have three exemplary wildlife havens to visit.
