#TBT to super-mom Madu with her first foster son, Bernas, in 2005!

Although Madu has never had any biological offspring of her own, she continues to amaze us with the incredible job she does as a mother!

The sloth is the world’s slowest mammal

They may be slow in speed, but they quickly remind us of why we love them! How adorable is this photo; could baby Raisin be any cuter? #OnlyZooATL #sloth

“To me, there’s no better zookeeping than bad weather zookeeping. Those are the days that remind me why I entered this career in the first place”

The reason might not be what you think! Make sure you check out our latest Keeper Blog entry from Mike Marazzi on February 2, to find out what inspired him to be a zookeeper. You might also find a little comic relief!

Keep orangutans in mind when purchasing Valentine’s Day candy

You might not realize it, but around 40 to 50 percent of your household products contain palm oil.  It can be found in snack foods, shampoo, cosmetics and more. In order to convert the nutrient-rich soils of Indonesia and Malaysia for palm oil production, entire rainforests are destroyed on the scale of 300 football fields every hour. Orangutans and many other animals cannot survive without these forests.  The next time you’re shopping, take a look at the label. We encourage you to shop for products made with only sustainable palm oil.  Check out zooatlanta.org for your orangutan friendly shopping guide and more information!   #WildlifeMattersZA

When you sponsor an animal, you help us continue our conservation work here at the Zoo and around the world. This Valentine’s Day, you can help with conservation by purchasing our Limited-Release Sponsorship, the Valentine’s Day Flamingo!

Pandas consume anywhere from 20 to 40 pounds of bamboo each day to get all their nutrients

A giant panda’s digestive system resembles that of a carnivore more than an herbivore – so much of what is eaten is passed as waste. To obtain this much food means that a panda must spend 10 to 16 hours a day foraging and eating! The rest of their time is usually spent sleeping and resting.
