Still traveling. Still healthy. Still safe. That being said, please check out these shots from recent 2-day visit to the San Diego Zoo & Safari park.

In awe of the dedicated operation conducted on these lovely grounds. Home to over 4,000 animals with 800 species, what is truly impressive is the 2 million plants located throughout the park and safari grounds. Their botanical collection is superb! Lots of volunteers on property ready to assist and masks required for children above the age of two years old. As a global conservation committed to saving species around the world, it’s clear to see why San Diego Zoo Global is a world-renown destination for conservationists and families. An inspiration for our team as we work to bring more preservation sites to the Virgin Islands.

Beautiful flamingos on display in several areas throughout the park grounds.
