badge-image-of-the-weekWhen preparing its 2012 Annual Report, The Calgary Zoo traded its traditional PDF for Instagram. Proclaiming the 2012 Annual Report “The Year of the Penguins,” 55 photos and captions serve as the report pages and content. Packed full of the stats, financial figures and even a welcome note from their President & Chief Executive Officer, the Instagram posts tell the Calgary Zoo’s story in a unique, highly visual way.
