To Our Readers,
A sincere thank you for an incredible year. We hope you enjoyed our bright-eyed little friends. We also hope you learned something about the important work conducted at zoos and aquariums around the world to protect these species in the wild.
We leave you with the residents of the Smithsonian National Zoo's Small Mammal House enjoying special winter treats. See you in 2010!
