From the News: Patricia Wright, lemur expert, at Seneca Park Zoo

"The Seneca Park Zoo has been an amazing partner in this. You need someone who is going to stick with you and keep funding the things you need."
- Patricia Wright

Even a relatively small zoo can have an outsized impact, both on conservation and on the lives of its visitors.  The article doesn't explain what led to Patricia Wright's transformation from housewife to lemur expert, but it's hard to imagine that the zoo had no impact in the transition.  Whatever the role of the Seneca Park Zoo in her story, it's inspirational to see how one person - no matter at what stage of life - can make a difference for endangered wildlife, even if its at the other end of the globe.
