From Library Journal:

The history of the National Zoo was first outlined in A Zoo for All Seasons (Smithsonian, 1979); Page's book could be considered its sequel. But his text is more than just a traditional history; it also candidly presents the vital role all zoos play in educating the public, conducting field and laboratory research, and campaigning for environmental issues. Page, author of Zoo: A Modern Ark ( LJ 5/1/90), frequently jumps from topic to topic and digresses at length, but these excursions don't mar the quality of the writing or cloud the complex concepts presented. A sobering yet delightful book for general audiences with some knowledge of environmental issues.

From School Library Journal:

YA-- Fantastic close-up, full-page color photographs and a text full of vivid descriptions take readers on an armchair visit to the Washington National Zoo and to some of its projects around the world. The writing is entertaining, and it provides a qualified guide not normally available to the public. The importance of science--research, observation, and creative solutions--is evident at every step. This book serves as an excellent introduction to the role of genetics, nutrition, and chemistry in zoology. Page also describes the zoo's efforts that place it in the forefront of the work being done to help endangered species throughout the world. --Claudia Moore, W. T. Woodson High School, Fairfax, VA
