Bernas, or “Junie,” one of our male Sumatran orangutans, is very playful and social, yet he can also have his mellow times. Like most orangutans, if you get a chance to catch his attention, you will notice he has especially expressive eyes that seem to draw you in.

There is an adage that states: It takes a village to raise a child. I think those words of wisdom can be applied to a number of situations. I consider Denver Zoo a “village” united in the goal of providing the best atmosphere for our animals and guests. But it takes every member of our team to pull it off.

I love a little healthy competition. There’s nothing like going to a baseball game and cheering on the Rockies. That’s also how I feel about Denver Zoo – I consider myself the Zoo’s No. 1 fan. However, unlike the rivalry between sports teams, zoos across the nation don’t compete, we collaborate.

Last week we unveiled 38 LEGO® brick sculptures that have never been seen in Denver! This one-of-a-kind exhibit, Nature Connects, Art with LEGO® Bricks, by Sean Kenney is receiving great acclaim as it travels from city to city across the nation.

This week’s feathered friend is Cyril, a blue dacnis (Dacnis cayana). He is one of the smallest, brightest and most colorful birds at Denver Zoo, since arriving on May 9, 2012. Even though he is very bright and colorful, he is not always easy to spot. This is because he likes to spend a lot of time in the canopy and is very small and very fast. He only weighs 12.4 grams, about the weight of a little more than 2 nickels.
