When Doug Iden retired as a financial manager, he pursued a refreshing, new career as a volunteer and zoo educator at the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical
Garden.  After six years, he is still excited to be there.
This is the mission and vision of the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden.  The Zoological society of Cincinnati was founded in 1873 and officially opened its doors in 1875, making the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden the second oldest Zoo in the United States.  The Zoo was founded on 65 acres in the middle of the city, and since then has acquired some of the surrounding blocks and several reserves in the Cincinnati's suburbs.  In an effort to allow maximum space for animals, alternate parking spots are being sought out. 
The Zoo was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1987 due to its significant architecture featured in the Elephant House, the Reptile House, and the Passenger Pigeon memorial.  At its opening, there were 800 animals, 400 of which were birds.  Most of these animals were acquired from a bankrupt circus.  In those years, animals were well cared for, but were caged so that visitors could see them up close and personal.  Of course today the animals are in more naturalistic environments, and most are captive born. 
The Captive Breeding program at the Zoo has long been successful. The Lindner Center for Conservation and Research of Endangered Wildlife (CREW) was founded in 1986 to strengthen the tradition.  The research has made the Cincinnati Zoo an international leader in the protection and propagation of endangered animals and plants around the world. 
Doug hopes that you will all be able to travel to Cincinnati to enjoy the beauty of the zoo and gardens soon!  They are located at 3400 Vine Street, and their phone is 513-281-4700.
