#WCSGrizzlyBearsHoA 
 
Betty and Veronica, Central Park Zoo’s newest residents, are grizzly bears with storied pasts. Originally born in the wild in Montana and Wyoming, both bears followed their mothers in search of food in areas where people live and work. The bears became too accustomed to humans, and local authorities considered them a danger to people. So, Betty and Veronica were rescued in 1995 and lived at the Bronx Zoo for nearly two decades before moving to their new home in Manhattan earlier this year. 
 
Meet the expert -

Kelly Boghossian, Senior Wild Animal Keeper, Polar Zone, WCS Central Park Zoo
As the senior keeper for the Polar Zone at Central Park Zoo, Kelly manages care of all bears, harbor seals, penguins, sea lions, waterfowl and more at the zoo. She started in May 2013 as a keeper and was soon promoted to a senior keeper in early 2014. Prior to the Central Park Zoo, Kelly worked as a vet tech manager at a veterinary hospital and at Turtle Back Zoo in New Jersey. She received her Bachelor’s Degree in Anthropology from Rutgers University.

It’s time to call out Craigslist. A new report from +Wildlife Conservation Society and +International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) reveals a thriving ivory trade on the site. This goes directly against Craigslist's own policy banning the sale of ivory and animal parts. Tell them to lay down the law and stop the sales, now. http://bit.ly/1GF1rLI #CraigslistCrackdown
Craigslist's policy prohibits the sale of animal parts and ivory. So why is there ivory for sale on its sites? Tell them to enforce their policy!

+Sherry Ralph-Lyle They need a decent job to feed their children. They need a perspective in life as i.e. elephant rangers for tourism or a farm aid. And most important: People please don't buy anything made of ivory!

Saving Wildlife and Wild Places
Introduction
The Wildlife Conservation Society, founded in 1895, has the clear mission to save wildlife and wild places across the globe. Our story began in the early 1900’s when we successfully helped the American bison recover on the Western Plains. Today, we protect many of the world’s iconic creatures here and abroad, including gorillas in the Congotigers in Indiawolverines in the Yellowstone Rockies, and ocean giants in our world’s amazing seascapes.
