For Singles Awareness Day, say hello to this handsome fella… Papa. He is a little self-conscious of his wrinkles but we think they are beautiful. ☺ Despite first impressions, vultures are actually very hygienic animals! Featherless or lightly feathered heads and necks help to keep vultures clean as they feed. Unfortunately, however, vultures are the single most threatened group of birds. And they need our help. Stop by the Sami Family Amphitheater on Sunday, February 19th for our bake sale in support of Vulture conservation. You can also help by purchasing a unique vulture shirt, for which all proceeds will go to Vulpro, a group dedicated to saving vultures from extinction! Get details on both the bake sale and shirt via this link: http://zoomiami.org/vultures

Last Friday was the inauguration of the Animal Fun Factory, Presented by the José Milton Foundation. Special thanks to Ana Veiga Milton (Zoo Miami Foundation Past Chairwoman) for her support and dedication to the project’s concept, as well as to Julio Mesa for serving as the project’s manager!
We also want to thank Taste, our very own Zoo Miami catering for the beautiful and delicious hors d'oeuvres. It is because of them that we had a truly tasty time debuting the first interactive Animal Enrichment Center in a US Accredited Zoo.
This novel engagement space allows guests to work alongside staff to build enrichment and training items for the wildlife in our care. The space features enrichment opportunities for our ambassador animals to enjoy right alongside zoo guests. The exterior of the building has a Cuban and Caribbean theme, complete with usable domino tables for special events. Come see for yourself soon! http://ow.ly/i/rGc9y http://ow.ly/i/rGc9z http://ow.ly/i/rGc9E
