“What’s New at the Zoo”;  by Jim O’Shea

Jim O’Shea will be presenting “What’s New at the Zoo”.
This is a “continuation” or “update” of “The History of the Zoo”, which focuses on the happenings at the Zoo since 2000.  This is a zoo outreach program, “ZOO TO YOU” in which volunteers go to various schools and organizations, and present zoo topics.

Cincinnati Zoo is the second oldest zoo in the United States, and has a remarkable history and is continually expanding, while offering numerous educational programs to its visitors.  In addition to the increase in animal exhibits and births, there is a lot going on in the plant division, and environmental greening
projects.

Jim has been volunteering at the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden for about 4 years.  One of his responsibilities is to dive and clean the manatee tank, since he is a certified SCUBA diver.
His day job is with the city of Cincinnati, Engineering Division of the water works.  Jim has been with the city for over 28 years. Planning to officially retire on February 1, 2019 so he can spend more time traveling and volunteering.
Also, he is the current president of Serve|NCH, a volunteer service organization in the city of North College Hill.
