Connecticut's Beardsley ZooZoo in Bridgeport, Connecticut
Hello from one of our maned wolf pups! Did you know: the maned wolf is not really a wolf, but neither is it a fox. It is a canid, and the only species in the genus Chrysocyon, meaning “golden dog.” Now you know!
Amur tigers, like our cubs Reka and Zeya, are very rare. Today’s tigers are thought to occupy less than seven percent of their original range. Threatened by habitat loss and degradation, poaching, human-tiger conflict, and loss of prey, four of nine tiger subspecies have disappeared from the wild just in the past hundred years. The future of the Amur Tiger is a major concern of accredited zoos. We’re working to save these beautiful animals for our grandchildren’s grandchildren.
