Our third Quarters for Conservation program, the Golden Lion Tamarin Association, is staying busy in Brazil. GLTs have lost about 98 percent of their habitat from deforestation, and now one of the highways that runs through their remaining range is scheduled to be doubled in width. Fortunately, the Golden Lion Tamarin Association has met with construction and government officials and...

Project Golden Frog, another one of our Quarters for Conservation Programs, has had tremendous success in the last year raising hundreds of Panamanian golden frogs at the El Valle Amphibian Conservation Center (EVACC) in Panama – there are nearly 2,000 frogs at the center! As you may know, these frogs, a symbol of good fortune in Panama, are extinct in the wild, but herpetologists are making...

This involves educating farmers on new fencing techniques around their farms and...

Zoo Atlanta is the only zoological institution outside Guatemala breeding this species, and is one of only four zoos in the U.S. home to these lizards. Read more about our...

Ya Lun and Xi Lun just keep on growing! #ZAPandas #OnlyZooATL

Yesterday was my first day working in pandas in a long time. Many things around the building don't change. The routine is the same, and, of course, there is always bamboo to be dealt with. The one big change I experienced was with the cubs. They are HUGE! The last time I got to work with them, they were both about 10 pounds. This...

It’s time to head back to my desk and answer today’s emails. Over the years, I have gotten the opportunity to make some of these educational experiences “extra-special” for a few guests. When people send me pictures, I like to keep them at my desk to remind me of the special moments and connections that I am lucky enough to have been a part of.

Now that the day is almost over, I just wanted...

Don’t worry about the other lion boys missing out on the Wild Encounter. While Azizi was inside meeting our Wild Encounter guests, Hondo and Hatari were getting fed and enriched out in their habitat. Even if you can’t make it to our Lion Wild Encounter, be sure to swing by the habitat on those days, and you’re bound to see our lions awake and active. #TakeoverTuesday – Chris Philpott, Animal...
