Born to first-time mom, Zoya, the two boys and one girl are doing well
INDIANAPOLIS — On May 27, the Indianapolis Zoo’s 7-year-old Amur tiger Zoya gave birth to triplets. The trio consists of one female cub (the first one born) and two males. The father is 14-year-old Pavel.
The female orangutan born on June 19th at Schönbrunn Zoo has been named “Kendari”. After internal considerations, they finally decided together on the name of an Indonesian city. Indonesia is the original home of the orangutans, where these special animals have now been almost wiped out due to deforestation and illegal trade. “We are very happy that the young animal is developing so well and that we have found a name. Kendari is getting bigger and stronger every day. She is already raising her head and slowly starting to perceive her surroundings with wide eyes. Everything is always in the protective arms of mother animal Sari”, says animal keeper Sandra Keiblinger.
Like all newborn baby animals, Copenhagen Zoo’s Amur leopard cub must of course also be welcomed with a visit from the vet. Vets check that it is healthy and well, weigh it, check the sex, and give it its own personal chip. The little one did not complain in the slightest, and the patient mother also took it in stride.
About two weeks later, the leopard cub has had its first excursion in the exhibit! It is a seemingly dangerous world, at first! Fortunately, once you get to know it, you quickly become more courageous

The two pups were found abandoned on a beach in Kasilof, Alaska
Seward, Alaska (June 13, 2022)– The Alaska SeaLife Center (ASLC) admitted two newborn harbor seal pups to the Wildlife Response Program on June 2, 2022.
The ASLC Wildlife Response team received a call on the 24-hour stranding hotline (1-888-774-7325) reporting an abandoned and skinny harbor pup seal on the beach in Kasilof, Alaska. Based on the female pup’s emaciated body condition, the team decided she needed immediate help. While the team was preparing to pick up this pup, the original caller from Kasilof spotted an additional seal pup on the beach, this one a male. This pup was also abandoned and in poor body condition. After receiving National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration approval, both pups were transported to the Alaska SeaLife Center for treatment.
Welcome to the world, fluffy Alpaca baby! Very brave and curious, Zoo Berlin’s youngest alpaca explores her new environment. The female cria of Mom Jessy and Dad Quito is called Emma and was born in late May.

Henry Vilas Zoo in Madison, WI are thrilled to announce the newest addition to their Zoo family; a critically endangered Bornean Orangutan! Chelsea’s baby arrived early Saturday morning, June 11, after a very smooth labor. Once the baby arrived, Chelsea immediately held it against her body, cleaned it, and she has been displaying all the maternal behaviors staff want to see at this stage. Infant orangutans are very small, usually only weighing about 3 pounds at birth, and are completely dependent on their mother for the first few years of their life. Chelsea has been doing such a good job of taking care of her baby, they didn’t immediately know the baby’s sex. Both Chelsea and the baby were doing well and sharing private bonding time together, behind the scenes in the Zoo’s Primate building.

Zoo Berlin is melting in more ways than one! On the one hand, they can't get enough of their three little baby capybaras and on the other hand, the temperatures are spiking! The three little capys know just what to do. Just one week after birth, they dare to leap into the cooling waters of their exhibit.
