The San Diego Zoo Presents The ANIMALS! A Multimedia Experience

 Home > Browse Our Collection > Software > PC DOS > The San Diego Zoo Pre ... Multimedia Experience

Discover the liveliest collection of animal sights, sounds and statistics ever to appear on a computer screen. The technical wizardry of Multimedia CD-ROM brings the mammals, birds and reptiles of the world-famous San Diego Zoo to your PC - but, you don't have to be a computer-whiz to use it. The intuitive, graphic user interface means The Animals! are just a click away!

The Animals! is a sneak preview of the San Diego Zoo's long-range plans. The idea is to group animals by natural habitats called biomes. Also called a bioclimatic zone, a biome is a combination of biological, geographical, and climate features. Biome organization of the zoo helps emphasize three important issues in the world today:

  • All life is connected.
  • People affect habitats.
  • Many species are endangered.

Just like the real zoo, The Animals! is full of wonderful animal exhibits. The difference is that each exhibit is a media event - photos, movies, stories, and text. Feel free to wander the zoo and explore exhibits any way you like. Or you can take a Guided Tour, such as Behind the Scenes, which takes you on a specific path through the zoo.


Much later, the San Diego Zoo was to make Internet history when the very first video uploaded to YouTube was recorded there.
