April 2024 – The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) Library and Archives, based at the Bronx Zoo, is proud to announce the completion of its Shelby White and Leon Levy Film Initiative.  Sponsored by the Leon Levy Foundation, this monumental project allowed WCS to assess and inventory more than 1,600 historical film reels. With the digitization of nearly 100 of these reels, WCS opens a window into the past, allowing unprecedented access to a treasure trove of zoo, aquarium, and wildlife conservation history.
