'Twas five days before Christmas and all through the Zoo, not a creature was stirring...except maybe two! Proud parents Eleah and Jafari (adult giraffes) were expecting a 145 lb, six foot tall baby boy.
It was a very smooth delivery taking about four hours. It's a long way down, but baby giraffes are designed for it and it all looked quite promising.
Oregon Spotted Frogs are quite possibly the most critically endangered amphibian in Canada and were once abundant in the Pacific Northwest and historically to the Northeast corner of California. Unfortunately, more than 90% have disappeared from it's former range.
Birds of Prey and the joy of volunteering at the Zoo. There is nothing more calming than to watch a bird soar high above, more exhilarating than watching them swoop and dive, nor more satisfying then seeing them free. My favorite thing to do at the Zoo is to help with the Birds of Prey.
The Greater Vancouver Zoo is thrilled to welcome a friend for Hazina and his name is "Haben" which is an African name meaning "Pride".
