San Diego Zoo welcomes Dr. Moreau as new director of children's outreach

The beast in you!

RECALLING THE FACT THAT THE SAN DIEGO ZOO IS ALSO A SOPHISTICATED SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH FACILITY, BALBOA PARK — "I love children," says Dr. Moreau, newly arrived Director of Children's Outreach at the San Diego Zoo, and author of the "Let Your Wild Ones Meet Ours" ad campaign that has appeared on billboards all over the city. "And I also love animals. And the interesting thing is, I just repeated myself."

Dr. Moreau in his lab, musing on the notion that little boys are made of snakes and snails and puppy dog tails.

Dr. Moreau, who recently completed a lengthy (and so far, secret) research project on an unnamed tropical island, "came highly recommended," says zoo director of primatology Kim Gibbons. "Visitors to his island facility reported truly remarkable breakthroughs in human-animal relations, and also behavioral management. We've had word that he took to calling the critters in his care his 'animal family.' That is just exactly the attitude we're looking to spread here at the San Diego Zoo: human families and animal families, learning and growing together. We're looking forward to seeing what he has in store for the children of America's Finest City."

When asked for a sneak peek, Moreau replied, "I once heard a mother refer to her rambunctious son as a 'wild animal,' and then opine that he 'belonged in a zoo.' She meant it as a criticism, but I considered it an inspiration. Children are so unformed, so malleable. They haven't yet drawn the hard line between homo sapiens and the rest of the animal kingdom, and that gives me hope. It's the perfect time to begin introducing them to the possibilities of both nature and science, and the zoo is a great place to make that happen!"
