Professor Carol Schwalbe's science journalism class produced a 15-minute documentary, "A Modern Zoo," that gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at Reid Park Zoo in Tucson and the wildlife conservation work being done today and in the future.

Students Marissa Heffernan (producer), Carly Oseran, Elizabeth Kinney, Alyssa Hill and Nick Smallwood talked about how they made the film at a school gathering on Nov. 29.

The class also will produce a magazine, ZooView, by next spring, with Heffernan and Oseran as the co-editors.
