In the spring of 2003, this osprey pair began nesting on a light pole at the Boulder County Fairgrounds and returned each year.
In 2009, wildlife biologists moved the nest to its current location just east of the Cattail pond for the birds’ safety. Our biologists believe that the local surge in nests may be offspring returning to their previous habitat area.
(WHAS11) -- Since the early 2000’s the gorilla sanctuary has been one of the most popular exhibits at the Louisville Zoo, but recently some visitors have been getting a little more than they bargained for thanks to their cell phones.“We had just walked into the gorilla enclosure, and I was actually looking at the baby gorilla.
Mayor Greg Fischer has directed the Louisville Commission on Public Art to review its catalogue of public art to develop a list of pieces that can be interpreted to be honoring bigotry, racism and/or slavery.
“I turned and I saw this lady sitting on a bench by the window, and the gorilla is right next to her, and she’s showing the gorilla video.”Over the next twenty minutes, Lindsey Costello sat with Jelani showing him videos of other gorillas, and a friend snapped this picture which quickly went viral, but she says it doesn’t show the gorilla’s true talents.“If he got tired of a video he’d move his hand up and swipe,” said Costello. He intimately enjoyed the videos.”“They really appreciate having people come and hang out with them, sit and show them pictures, and do interesting things,” said Jill Katka.
“We have some older female gorillas that really love children.”Assistant Mammal Curator Jill Katka says that Jelani learned to love technology at a young age which has helped him go viral multiple times, drawing attention to a critically endangered species.“He kind of grew up looking at pictures and hanging out with people,” said Katka. Everyone who comes to the Louisville Zoo is helping protect animals like Jelani in the wild.
Yes they are even often found on many web sites such as this one.
