Otter Pups make debut at the Palm Beach Zoo

Palm Beach Post photo

Wyatt and Jessie think they are the hot new act in town....well they can hold that title for a little longer but they better be ready to step aside when I get there.

I'm packing my bags and planning to come the zoo very soon....more on that later.

Here's a story and video of Wyatt and Jessie:

Earth Days was a huge success at the Palm Beach Zoo

There are very generous supporters of the Palm Beach Zoo.

Two of the biggest supporters are Melvin and Claire Levine who have donated $4 million to the zoo's Animal Care Complex. In the picture above they are being thanked by West Palm Beach Mayor Lois Frankel who gave them a key to the city.

And I hear they can't wait until I arrive at the Palm Beach Zoo....it's getting closer.

Here is a story that appeared in the Shiny Sheet:

What are you doing for Earth Day?

Many of the animals at the Palm Beach Zoo are on endangered or threatened lists.

Unfortunately, the numbers of koalas in Australia have dwindled so much that I fear many of my relatives and friends may be in jeopardy.

The good news is that there are places like the Palm Beach Zoo that work hard to protect endangered animals and the zoo is deeply involved in conservation efforts around the world.

Hopefully when I get to the Palm Beach Zoo I'll meet a young sheila and we can start a family.  Every new joey raised at the zoo increases the chance of koalas surviving.

You can help by donating to help me get to Palm Beach...and please support all the great work that they do to help the many endangered species at the Palm Beach Zoo.

Happy Earth Day!!

Getting to the Palm Beach Zoo.

Still working on arrangements for coming to the Palm Beach Zoo.

Looking forward to it mates. And I've got my eye on this California sheila who is also thinking about moving to Palm Beach.

She's a bit of a diva I hear. My mates there wonder if she'll be interested in a common mate like me.

Wonder what kind of Koala she likes?

Look at my picture...Aunt Charlotte says I have rugged good looks.

Maya the celebrity jaguar gets a physical

Take a look at this video mates....it appears that when I go to the Palm Beach Zoo I'm going to get great care.

I've heard a lot about this "Celebrity Jaguar."  Maya better be prepared to step out the limelight when this handsome Aussie gets there.

Breakfast with the Bunny

I hear that hundreds had fun during one of four Breakfasts with the Bunny at the Palm Beach Zoo.

What a great way to celebrate Easter.

Maybe when I get there we can have Breakfast with Oz.

Earth Day at the Palm Beach Zoo

All my friends know that April 22 is Earth Day. It's a great time to remember that wildlife around the world - including my fellow Koalas - are in danger of disappearing.

What really impresses me about the Palm Beach Zoo is that they celebrate Earth Day every day.

No foolin!

May plans to move to Palm Beach are taking shape. I hope to have more details to share soon.
