Denver Zoo visitors can enjoy seeing a brand new species to the zoo, Somali wild asses. Two males named Kalifa and Kamowa, just arrived from the San Diego Wild Animal Park. The two half-brothers share the same father. Kalifa, the oldest brother, was born in San Diego in July 2008. Kamowa followed in February 2009. Visitors can see them in their yard now across from Toyota Elephant Passage.
Snooze, an A.M. Eatery got a big polar bear "paws up" for being green this morning. Denver Zoo, in cooperation with City and County of Denver-Department of Environmental Health and Polar Bears International, presented the restaurant with the 2012 Paw of Approval Award. The award honors businesses in their communities that are taking exceptional strides to reduce their carbon output, which helps conserve worldwide polar bear habitat.
Denver Zoo is pleased to announce the hiring of Dana Murphy as the new Vice President for Education & Volunteer Services. Murphy joins the zoo with more than 25 years experience in the field of science education, with a focus on conservation education.
"Dana has a keen understanding of teens, youth development and educational programming for all ages," says Denver Zoo President/CEO Craig Piper. "We are thrilled she has joined our team and look forward to her implementation of exciting, diverse educational programs for both children and adults."
A couple of spotted siblings are surveying their new home at Denver Zoo. Cheetah brothers Marvin and Mojo just arrived from The Wilds, a wildlife conservation center near Zanesville, Ohio. Nearly full grown, they were born at The Wilds in October 2010. Visitors can see the pair prowling their yard now.
