Zoo Atlanta Annual Plans and Reports

Dear friends,
As we look back on a record-breaking 2014, we recall just a few of the highlights that made the year outstanding. You’ll notice that we’ve presented these points in an infographic style, capturing the high notes of a year that I think we’ll all someday recognize as a defining moment in the Zoo’s history.  

It’s interesting to note that this same year also happened to be our 125th anniversary year. Given all of the pioneering innovations we explored in 2014 and continue to explore today, I can assure you that while we’re very proud of our longevity, we neither look nor feel our age! 

This snapshot is entitled “Pathways,” referring not just to the paths of the Zoo’s current footprint, but also to the steps we’re taking in the future, both physically and metaphorically. In a year that brought our highest attendance in 14 years, we also received the thrilling news that the City of Atlanta would be honoring Zoo Atlanta with the stewardship of the historic Cyclorama building and its immediately surrounding property. We saw the beginnings of “A Grand New View: Elephants, Events and Expansion,” and as that vision continues to take shape, we see before us a future that’s no longer defined by the status quo. 

You’ve probably heard of the saying, “Show, don’t tell.” That saying traditionally applies to writing, but the further we progress into the Zoo’s next chapters, the more we find that we’re finally in a position to show you, rather than just tell you, where we’re going and how we intend to get there.

As is the case with any year in which we celebrate successes, people made it happen. That’s always been true, and it always will be true as we unite in a shared mission to preserve a future for wildlife and wild places around the world – a future that now takes shape because of you and your Zoo. 

As always, thanks for all you do!
