A striking tour of the creatures lost and found on a changing planet, our upcoming exhibition pairs books and engravings by D.R. Wakefield and professional photographs highlighting endangered and extinct animals with original paintings by the gorillas at Zoo New England.

With so much to introduce, we will be hosting two receptions:

The first, on January 16th, will celebrate the opening of the exhibit, with particular focus on D.R. Wakefield's work. The artist will be present to discuss his inspirations and processes.

The second, on January 30th, will highlight the Zoo's diverse contributions to the show. John Linehan, President and CEO of Zoo New England, will talk about the Zoo's mission and conservation efforts, while photographer Eric Kilby will be on hand to answer questions about his images. We will also be joined by special guests, some of the Zoo's Animal Ambassadors.
