Last week, the Houston Zoo and Whole Foods Market hit the beach to pick up trash on the Galveston shoreline. They found everything from milk jugs to cigarette butts to hundreds of plastic bottle caps. Check out our blog post to read more about how the community came together to remove around 20 full bags of waste from our beaches.

Meet Joy! After a two-year pregnancy, the wait is over for Shanti (and all of Houston!). Yesterday at 8:27 p.m., the 26-year-old Asian elephant gave birth to a 305-pound female after a short labor, and the calf began to nurse within three hours. The calf has been named Joy by the team who have dedicated their lives to the care, well-being, and conservation of these incredible animals.
