Judith Wolfe updates the Central Park Zoo information as changes take place. An avid conservationist, she has been a volunteer at the Wildlife Conservation Society's Central Park Zoo since 1990. Come visit the Zoo and catch Judy chatting about the animals on any given Friday.
Rick Anderson is the Official Photographer of CentralPark.com. Rick has been a professional photographer for the past ten years and is internationally known for his prints and posters, which include city skylines, sunsets, and collegiate sporting events. One of the most amazing things about the stunning photography that Rick has contributed to this site is the fact that he is able to capture these images during a few short visits to the City. This is while others of us wander around the Park seemingly for weeks trying take a few pictures that are half way acceptable. And he's tall. Sort of annoying actually.
Mary Schwalm has contributed additional photos for the Zoo pages. Mary is employed by the Associated Press as a Sports Photo Editor. She developed her fascination with animals as photography subjects at an early age at the Phoenix Zoo and continued with it later, after moving to New York, as a volunteer at the Central Park Zoo. More examples of Mary’s amazing work can be found at her website.
