Otterly Adorable Pups!

History was made recently at Brookfield Zoo, with the birth of twin North American otter pups. The pups, a male and a female, were born on February 23, making them the first successful births of this species in the zoo’s history. The pups are currently behind the scenes bonding with their mom and learning how to swim. They are scheduled to make their debut later this month.

Stronger Together

A big part of the lives of zoo animals includes interacting with the humans that take care of them. Human-animal interactions can be valuable tools that foster good welfare in zoo animals by allowing staff to monitor animal health and to provide animals with food, exercise, and stimulation.
