AT&T And City Parks Turn Queens Zoo Into ‘Hotspot’
The Wildlife Conservation Society’s (WCS) Queens Zoo, the city Department of Parks & Recreation (DOP), and AT&T launched free AT&T Wi-Fi service at the Queens Zoo. The zoo is the 24th city parks location to receive free AT&T Wi-Fi through the Wi- Fi in the Parks initiative.
Anyone with a Wi-Fi-enabled smartphone or device will be able to connect to the service for free and learn about activities at the zoo or more about the animals as they observe them. By connecting to Wi-Fi at the zoo, users can also interact with other animal fact-finding applications, upload photos and share with their social networks to enhance their zoo experience.
The Wi-Fi service will be available at specific locations within the zoo, including areas by the pronghorn, bison and sea lion exhibits. To launch the new Wi-Fi offering, the Wildlife Conservation Society and Queens Zoo are hosting a month-long photo contest.
Visitors can take photos of their favorite animals at the Queens Zoo and submit them for a chance to win a family membership to WCS wildlife parks. The winning photo will be featured online at www.queenszoo.com.
Photos should be sent to QZPhoto@wcs.org for consideration. The deadline for submissions is July 31.
