Tiger cubs explore outside – London

National Zoo Pandas looking forward to Spring

Everyone here in the David M.Rubenstein Family Giant Panda Habitat is eager for
spring to finally arrive. Even the pandas seem less interested in the snow with each
winter storm, spending less time playing in it than they did earlier in the winter.
As the last of the winter’s snow and ice finally melt away, we can look forward to
Bao Bao playing in her yard in the very near future. The yards are cub-proofed and
ready whenever she and Mei Xiang go out. But before Bao Bao can venture outside, we
have to finish the construction on the fence between Mei Xiang and Tian Tian’s
outdoor panda yards, which will be very soon. View more about the Pandas and watch the Panda Cam.

Raptor Project soars to the Brevard Zoo

Visit the Raptors – Brevard Zoo January 19-21, 2013

Brevard Zoo will host a three-day special exhibit featuring impressive birds of prey January 19-21, 2013, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. The exhibit, called The Raptor Project, will feature 15 to 20 raptors from all over the world, plus a chance to see a few take flight and learn about these amazing birds from master falconer and wildlife rehabilitator for more than 40 years, Jonathan Wood. Wood will host two shows each day at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. inside the Nyami Nyami River Lodge. The exhibit is free with paid Zoo admission.

Wood’s collection includes eagles, hawks, falcons, and owls, representative from every habitat on the planet including the arctic, desert, rainforest, wetlands, prairie, woodlands, and tundra. Although many of his flock have permanent handicaps barring them from re-entry into the wild, these flaws are hard to detect. Today they have been tamed and trained as charming ambassadors of the species.

You won’t want to miss this outstanding exhibit! For more info visit: http://www.brevardzoo.org
