Comment Guidelines
We’d love to hear from you. Share your thoughts in the comments section enabled on each blog post. A few things to keep in mind to keep this a constructive and family-friendly space:

Please be respectful and keep on topic in threads; we moderate comments to keep this a positive, constructive space.

You are always welcome to share your thoughts, but please do not monopolize the conversation by reposting content on one or more threads, posting links with no constructive commentary, or self-promoting your own website, Facebook page or other online presence; we may hide or delete repetitive or non-constructive posts and will certainly flag any SPAM.

Comments will be monitored for appropriateness, and may be removed if they are off topic, inflammatory, aggressive, discriminatory, harmfully misleading or otherwise destructive to the community. We do not tolerate personal attacks.

Comments not in line with these guidelines may be subject to non-approval or deletion by a blog manager.

Due to the volume of SPAM, comments on posts older than 14 days old are moderated and will appear after being reviewed by a blog manager.

If you want to reply to a blog post or topic privately, you are welcome to send an email to webkeeper@zoo.org to share your thoughts.
