Removal of History/ Zoo Management sections[edit]

I removed the Zoo history and Zoo Management sections because they were a word for word copy from the web page. You are welcome to add the sections back, but make sure they are not copy violations, and are sourced correctly. BeckyAnne(talk) 00:01, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

Peer Review Java Script Program[edit]

The following suggestions were generated by a semi-automatic javascript program, and might not be applicable for the article in question.

  • Please expand the lead to conform with guidelines at Wikipedia:Lead. The article should have an appropriate number of paragraphs as is shown on WP:LEAD, and should adequately summarize the article.[?]
  • Per Wikipedia:Context and Wikipedia:Manual of Style (dates), months and days of the week generally should not be linked. Years, decades, and centuries can be linked if they provide context for the article.[?]
  • See if possible if there is a free use image that can go on the top right corner of this article.[?] -- There is an image there.
  • Avoid including galleries in articles, as per Wikipedia:Galleries. Common solutions to this problem include moving the gallery to a separate page, like Gallery of Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens.[?]
  • When writing standard abbreviations, the abbreviations should not have a 's' to demark plurality (for example, change kms to km and lbs to lb).
  • Per Wikipedia:Context and Wikipedia:Build the web, years with full dates should be linked; for example, link January 15, 2006.[?]
  • Per WP:WIAFA, this article's table of contents (ToC) may be too long- consider shrinking it down by merging short sections or using a proper system of daughter pages as per Wikipedia:Summary style.[?]
  • Watch for redundancies that make the article too wordy instead of being crisp and concise. (You may wish to try Tony1's redundancy exercises.)
    • While additive terms like “also”, “in addition”, “additionally”, “moreover”, and “furthermore” may sometimes be useful, overusing them when they aren't necessary can instead detract from the brilliancy of the article. This article has 17 additive terms, a bit too much.
    • Vague terms of size often are unnecessary and redundant - “some”, “a variety/number/majority of”, “several”, “a few”, “many”, “any”, and “all”. For example, “All pigs are pink, so we thought of a number of ways to turn them.

Note: I am just printing the outpoint to improve the article. Some of them is Errorous, like the image in the top right corner that is already there. BeckyAnne(talk) 23:05, 5 June 2007 (UTC)


Don't know why the article has Australia as a former exhibit. Went to the zoo last week and its still there, just minus the koalas. In addition, added Birds of the Rift Valley to the East African part. Combined the two non-open gardens into one section.
