Did You Know?
Magellanic penguins are named after Ferdinand Magellan who first discovered them in 1519.
I’m glad to be the first person to welcome you to the new potterparkzoo.org! After a few months of really hard work by lots of people around PPZ, and our friends at Artemis Solutions, I think we’ve come up with a pretty amazing website. If you’ve been here before, you can see we’ve made a TON of changes. In fact, nearly everything is different. Things aren’t just pretty looking; she’s a beauty under the hood too! You’ll find photos from our visitors on our animal pages thanks to our Flickr group, our latest Tweets on the home page, special events in our spicy new calendar, and great behind the scenes info in this very blog.
Yep, I’d say we’ve done a pretty good job, and we have our growing online community to thank for all of this – that’s you! PPZ has been a part of Lansing for 90 years, and our fans are the absolute best. Our hope is that this site along with our pages at Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, and YouTube (coming soon), we’ll be able to create an experience online that enhances trips to your zoo.
As always, I’ll see you at the zoo, and don’t forget to stop in and say hi to me on Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr!
