Maybe I was spoiled by the Birmingham Zoo (which is INCREDIBLE!) or maybe I had high expectations because of our own little Museum of Life and Science here in Durham. Regardless, the NC Zoo was just a big disappointment. There were no zookeepers around to answer questions from inquisitive kids or training programs to help teach kids (and adults) the importance of preserving animal habitats and saving these great animals.
Needless to say, we will probably not be taking a trip back to the NC Zoo. We'll stick to the museum in Durham and I think it might even be worth it to fly back to Birmingham just for a visit to the zoo.
