Fresh New Look

by Jaime Wilson

The Sacramento Zoo website was first launched in 1997 and was one of the first zoo websites around. And it was the right price – FREE! The design work was donated, and for the price of one copy of Microsoft Frontpage, we were venturing into the internet world! Without knowing what we couldn’t do, we forged ahead and started selling memberships and taking donations online.

For the past ten years, we built upon the original look and design, and although it served us very well, we realized we need to forage a new look for the Zoo with some new room to grow.

We are very proud to announce that a fresh new look is coming, with a complete redesign of the Zoo website! In the next month you will see the change over, and we hope you like it.


The large, pretty graphic navigation menus will be gone, but are replaced by a main navigation menu bar that will let you move through the website with more ease, and will let us put more up-to-date content for visitors (including slideshows and videos).

The most exciting part is, now users can create a login and password that will enable the system to recognize you when you visit the site. This will give you access to areas that aren’t viewable to everyone. Now there will be a Members Only section that will have Zoo Member specific tips, invites and more. You can also see your secure giving history, manage your address and email preference. This is the room to grow we were looking for!

So, keep an eye out for the new site! We will blog more updates soon.
