Spotlight: Lincoln Park Zoo 
Leading Research and Innovation
Lincoln Park Zoo, located in the heart of the 12th district, is the 3rd most visited attraction in Chicago and is part of our every day life, neighborhood landscape and culture. Aside from its beauty, LP Zoo is at the cutting edge of conservation efforts and science research, with researchers asking questions about animal behavior.
We spoke to LP Zoo Senior Vice President Dr. Megan Ross. Dr. Ross is an expert in applied animal behavior, the science of determining how to better understand the needs of animals in order to better provide for them and integrate their needs in the zoo. Dr. Ross oversees learning centers, animal care, buildings and grounds at LP Zoo. Dr. Ross' passion for animals and understanding the way they perceive their environments is palpable.
"The people that work at LP Zoo are passionate about their jobs and are excited and enthusiastic about making a change for animals and the environment." -Dr. Ross
Dr. Ross shared some educational initiatives such as the creation of an app, ZooMonitor, which is free to zoos and aquariums around the world. The app collects information about animal behavior in order to determine animal needs. Another educational program that high schools participate in is 'Partners in Fieldwork', teaching students how to authentically research by collecting data about urban wildlife. This program seeks to expand science literacy exposure among students.
