Activities this year varied from games and face painting on the upper level to exhibitors on the main floor having information and/or displaying a variety of wildlife. There were also petting areas and pony rides.

Animals included those in enclosures (such as the yak) . . .

For the 17th annual event, I've a public FB album (open to everyone) of over a hundred photos featuring the highlights from WAA: happy people and animals. Enjoy! Following are links for Wild About Animlals from previous years:

The photos and text are put together by me for Robyn Graboski. Any mistakes, omissions, errors, and so forth are all my own.
Once again, I wish to mention that if I concentrated on some exhibitors more than others, it fell to luck of photography, and some photos came out better than others.
