On the 1st of the year we welcomed a baby pileated gibbon, this little one has been named Fisher, after Carrie Fisher. Wildlife World is one of only two zoo’s in the country to have these critically endangered acrobats. Between our two gibbon families, we have welcomed 7 gibbon babies over the past 10 years, Fisher being our 2nd pileated birth. Gibbons are not only the most endangered species of ape, they are also the most endangered primate species world wide.
Wildlife World’s keepers and veterinarians have raised dozens of species of wild and endangered animals over the past quarter century. At Wildlife World we strive to maximize genetic diversity in the zoological population with our breeding programs. By the indoor exhibit’s very nature, the young animals on display change from week to week, month to month and season to season, so it’s always a surprise as to what babies you will get to see!
