I am an Animal/Nature Photographer as a Hobby but I plan on going pro some day with my Animal Photographs. The Posters and and Photographs that I post I have created. Most of my photographs are taken at the San Francisco Zoo or other zoos so that is why I call myself "Lifes A Zoo".

I am a proud supporter of the San Francisco Zoo has a Member, A Zoo Parent, and as a member that supplies photographs to the zoo for them to use.

I also support the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International, National Wildlife Federation, Defenders of Wildlife, Conservation International, Madagascar Fauna Group, Marine Mammal Center and the World Wildlife Fund.


Favorite Quotes:

"When you realize the value of all life, you dwell less on what is past and concentrate on the preservation of the future." ~ Dian Fossey

"To see a world in a grain of sand, And a heaven in a wild flower, Hold infinity in the palm of your hand, And eternity in an hour." --William Blake

"Creatures without feet have my love and likewise do those with two feet and those with four feet I love and those too with many" - The Buddha (566-486 B.C.)

"Let him extend unboundedly his heart to every living thing." - The Buddha (566-486 B.C.)

"Compassion is the radicalism of our time." -The Dalai Lama


The third annual National Endangered Species Day is scheduled for May 16, 2008.

Endangered Species Day — which was declared a national day of observance by the US Senate in 2006 — celebrates AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums significant contributions to conservation education, cooperative breeding and field conservation, both at home and abroad. AZA zoos and aquariums can deliver powerful, positive messages that encourage visitors to join them in taking action to help wildlife. Endangered Species Day is the perfect venue to bring that message to your visitors.

Last year, zoos and aquariums throughout the country — along with botanical gardens and arboretums, community and environmental groups, schools, and individuals — celebrated Endangered Species Day with exhibits, special presentations, tours and other activities.

You can find more info on the National Endangered Species Day at the AZA Website:

Also check out the Endangered Species Coalition for more info:

The Bald Eagle is no longer classified as Endangered but it was left on the poster on purpose since it is considered a success story.
