The workshop was held at the Wildlife Conservation Society's Central Park Zoo in New York City... During a break, we took a walk through the park, and some of the animals like the Otters, Polar Bears and Seals did not seem to mind the freezing cold weather...
Following the workshop, Michael Scholl was invited to give another presentation on Monday the 26th of January at the Wildlife Conservation Society headquarters at their Bronx Zoo. Michael was very kindly invited to stay at the WCS guesthouse within the Bronx Zoo.
During the evenings of the workshop and the days following the workshop, I did a lot of walking around in New York... The city that never sleeps... always buzzing... what an incredible and wonderful city! Below are some pictures of the famous Manhattan Bridge and Brooklyn Bridge connecting Manhattan and Brooklyn...
Apart from walking (which I did a lot despite the biting coldness), New York offers an amazing network of Subway... otherwise, we sometimes took a yellow cab...
Although having been to New York twice in my life before (15 years ago), New York never ceases to amaze me... the number of people... the general and constant activity everywhere... the huge skyscrappers... okay... I know what you are thinking: "He lives in Gansbaai...", and you are probably right... What an amazing and beautiful city anyway!
