Hello all! I met Jonathan when I was an intern at Zoo New England in the summer of 2003. He had a profound impact on my life and I think of him often. As a soccer gal, I was inexperienced in the animal field and Jonathan never took my lack of knowledge for a lack of passion. He took the time to explain everything I probably should have already known. I am so grateful I met him. I wanted to donate to the fund so I chose the only name in this group I recognized - John Linehan. Cheers to everyone! 3 years ago
