Denver Zoo works with our animals to learn certain behaviors that help them voluntarily participate in their own medical care. In this video, our maned wolf, Lima, demonstrates crate training, which helped her keepers facilitate a low-stress move to her new zoo home as part of her role in the maned wolf Species Survival Plan (SSP). Crate training can also help shift animals to the veterinary...

In 1996, Denver Zoo initiated a long-term conservation project in Mongolia. Since then, we’ve been collecting ecological data on habitat use by several key species that inhabit Ikh Nart, including argali sheep, Siberian ibex, marmots and vultures. We employed radio, GPS, and satellite telemetry techniques to gather much of these data.

Our research data showed the locations of important...

The next time you are walking our grounds, take a closer look into the flower beds to see our spring bulbs. Although a bulb is typically underground, it’s actually composed of modified leaves! These fleshy storage organs keep reserves of food and water for the plant to use during the dormant season—usually the hottest part of the summer and following winter. Some spring bulbs start to grow...

Denver Zoo uses Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to monitor several species of conservation significance by placing telemetry GPS units on an animal and monitoring their movement. Movement patterns are then overlaid with data on habitat, temperature, ruggedness, moisture, precipitation and possible human impact.

The combination of several datasets can analyze species resource selection...

After witnessing a significant decline in his quality of life due to issues of advanced age, such as chronic arthritis, zoo veterinarians and animal care staff made the difficult decision to humanely euthanize him on Friday, April 14, at...

Denver Zoo is home to both grazers and browsers. Grazers feed primarily on grass but browsers can feed on other material due to physical modifications. Browse can be defined as plant material, such as stems, bark and leaves, for animal enrichment and to supplement animal diets.

Our Horticulture team uses browse to support both the physical health and behavioral health of our animals....

One of the ways we do this is with our Be A Zookeeper Zone, which engages children ages 2-10 with up-close animal experiences, such as box turtles or guinea pigs, helping to demonstrate how Denver Zoo uses science every day. Guests can learn from zookeepers about how they use math to weigh animals, or use...

Anti-Müllerian hormone levels in women can be used to predict the quantity of their ovaries, and thus the likelihood that assisted reproductive techniques will be successful. We are researching the use of the same hormone in our gorillas to see if it can help determine which specific females are more likely to become pregnant in the future. This will help guide our decisions about which...
