Denver Zoo is thrilled to announce the birth of Blossom, the first gerenuk (Gair-uh-nook) ever to be born at the zoo. The female calf was born March 6 to mother, Layla, and father, Woody, and is the third generation female currently living in the gerenuk exhibit. The species is known to be shy and are expert hiders, but guests may be able to catch a glimpse of Blossom in her yard now, weather depending.
Denver Zoo is excited to partner with The Goddard School for Early Childhood Development in the creation of a special map to encourage learning through play. The seasonal activity map, developed for families with children ages one to six-years-old, will feature 20 different areas around the zoo for kids to find, explore and experience. Both organizations embrace the learning through play approach, and will launch new activities at the zoo that deliver a creative, fun and engaging learning environment.
Denver Zoo conservation biologists are studying the effects bison have on their ecosystem in northern New Mexico. This is one of several projects the zoo is undertaking as it takes over management of the Rio Mora National Wildlife Refuge, near the small town of Watrous. The zoo's primary goals for Rio Mora are to pursue wildlife conservation and research, restore ecosystems and water flow, disseminate information to like minded individuals in the regions, and provide conservation education.
