Prep For Tomorrow’s Zoo Hangout

Had a setup rehearsal with Matt, the San Diego Zoo’s social media guru, for tomorrow evening’s live Google+ Hangout with Zoo Ambassador Rick Schwartz. This will be his second such online get-together since his return from studying koala conservation in Australia.

There will be many watching, but only three of us interacting with Rick and Matt, one of whom is Michelle (she has an excellent blog), a zoo-loving, photographer friend of mine. The entire hangout will be available later on the Zoo’s YouTube channel.

The first picture shows my cluttered area and simple backdrop setup. Have fun snooping all the detritus. (Yes those are pirate skulls, peanut m&ms, scissors hanging from a finger, Zoo cups and Toy Story toys. And no need to worry, those medicine containers do not actual contain prescribed medication.)

The second image is just a screen capture of our hangout rehearsal. The backdrop worked pretty well, I think.

I’m really looking forward to this live video chat.

My life...and escape

Chattin' with Matt



  1. Add one more … Dylan will be hanging out too! Looking forward to chatting with you tomorrow.

    1. I’m really looking forward to it too, Michelle! I wasn’t sure if you’d be comfortable me mentioning Dylan, but I am looking forward to hearing what he has to say or ask! Should be fun.

      1. Thanks for thinking about that, but unfortunately the kid is more well-known at the zoo and on the internet than me!:)

        We can only hangout for about 15 minutes because he’s got Cub Scouts, but we couldn’t say no when we were invited to come back.
