For more than a quarter-century, photographer Paul Selvaggio has captured images of animals at the Pittsburgh Zoo and broadcast them to the world.

On April 6, he will discuss the creation of those photos at the East Suburban Artists League's meeting in Murrysville.

Since 1991, Selvaggio, creative director at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium, has been photographing, filming and studying animals at the zoo and all over the world.

He will present a new body of photos created during the past year at the league's meeting, set for 6:30 p.m. at Christ Lutheran Church, 5330 Old Logan Ferry Road.

Selvaggio will highlight the creation of the zoo's 2018 calendar as well as his documentary photography of manatee and coral conservation projects undertaken in 2017.

The meeting is open to the public.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
