100 Years of Helping Animals & the Zoo

Join us in celebrating the Zoological Society of Milwaukee’s 100th birthday in 2010. We have vintage photos and stories about our mission throughout the years in our publications and online. Do you have old photos of the Milwaukee County Zoo between 1910 and 1989? Do you have pictures of a Zoological Society program such as a member picnic or a summer camp from more than 20 years ago? How about old film or video? We’d love to capture these memories for our Web site and our publications. So please send us photos and videos, within the following limitations:

  1. A century of support - Imagine the FuturePictures and slides should be before 1989 and must have the date or year and location in the Zoo or the event. By submitting the photos, with an attached and signed permission slip, you give us permission to use the photo on our Web site, in publications or in promotions. We will not be able to return your photos; so we suggest that you transfer your photos to a digital CD (see below).
  2. Film and video should be transferred to a DVD and it should include ONLY the Zoo or Zoological Society footage. Again, we can’t return the disc; so make sure you have a copy. The disc or an attached paper should have the date or year taken and the location in the Zoo or Zoological Society event name. By submitting the photos and videos, with an attached and signed permission slip, you give us permission to use the images on our Web site, in publications or in promotions.
  3. We recommend Art’s Camera as a place where you can get photos transferred to a CD, or copied. If you have old 8mm or 16mm film, Crivello’s in Brookfield can transfer that to a DVD.

For details on where to send your photos and videos, please view the permission slip. If you don’t have access to the Internet, call us at (414) 258-2333, and we’ll send you instructions and a permission slip to fill out for your pictures.
