Zoo launches election of a different type
Who would make a better leader of the jungle: a manatee or a polar bear? You can decide.
The campaign supporting the March 4 levy for the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden is urging voters to get involved in an election of another sort: the “King or Queen of the Jungle Presidential “Election.”
In an effort to encourage people to become more informed about presidential candidates – and about zoo animals – the Friends of the Zoo is asking the public (particularly students) to take an online poll: Participants vote on who they want to be president (Clinton, Huckabee, McCain, Obama, Paul), and on which animal they think would make the best King or Queen of the Jungle (bald eagle, giraffe, lion, manatee, polar bear), and why. Then they are asked to match each candidate with the animal most like that person.
