Lynn and Rick Bibbee's story is one of hope and heart. It's a story about caring and compassion and taking dedication to a whole different level. It's about putting their efforts into preserving a place where all of God's creatures, big and small, exist in harmony. It's about saving a zoo. A few years ago, the Hagerstown couple didn't even know Tri-State Zoological Park existed in Cumberland, Md. - despite the fact that they had lived there for many years. But during a visit to the area last March, Rick Bibbee picked up a local magazine and spotted a discount coupon for admission to the zoo. When he returned home, he shared the information with his wife and the two decided to make it a destination.
