Joe and a Galapagos Tortoise

Dr. Joe Flanagan is one of our star vets here at the zoo.  When he is not at the zoo he continues to save species in the Galapagos.  The Galapagos tortoise is very near and dear to his heart and he joins in the efforts to ensure this species survival.

Check out the latest issue of “Galapagos News” they spotlight his most recent exciting effort with the Pinta tortoise project.  He co-wrote the story inside.   Click the link below, then pick the fall/winter 2010 issue.

Emilee MayberryI've never even seen them moving! They are always sleeping in the same spot. Maybe these new girls will revitalize the pack :)

Lilian CorriganIt's cool to see them so active. Whenever we visit the zoo they are usually just laying around.

It's #WildWednesday! We continue to celebrate our most recent additions to two endangered species: our baby boy Bornean Orangutan and two baby boy Fishing Cats. Staff is eagerly awaiting the day when we can invite the public to help us name these gorgeous little ones. Until then, we follow along with their development behind the scenes with the Jackson Zookeepers, who run our Instagram account: www.instagram.com/jacksonzoo/
