Maria & Chelsea made an appearance with two of our furry friends (Chewy the Gibbon, and Penelope the Lemur) on “El Show De Fernando Hidalgo”. Maria spoke about Zoological Wildlife Foundation and a little bit about what we do. The show went well and Maria did a wonderful job speaking about the foundation and animals they brought along with the short amount of time they had on stage. Chelsea and Maria will be going back regularly to the show and bringing different animals along with them! Keep checking back to see when the next date for the show will be! To view more photos of their appearance then visit the Maria & Chelsea on “El Show De Fernando Hidalgo” Gallery.

We recently attended the “Earth Day Festival” at Pinecrest Gardens! The outcome was fantastic! We had live animal presentations, and we also had animal photo sessions! Everyone thought our animal shows were great, and we also had many people take photos with our many different animals after the show! Pinecrest gardens is a beautiful area, and the Earth Day Festival turned out very nice. Some animals we brought to the event were our capuchins, binturong, lemur, python, crocodile, tiger cub, gibbons, and a few more! To view more photos of the event then visit our Earth Day 4/15/12 Gallery.
On the Left of the photo is Marley and to the right is Sativa, and they are both White-Handed Gibbons! Today we caught them “Monkeying Around”. Also if you notice above them is a new play dome jungle gym that we recently installed in there. They really enjoy using that thing! These primates can really teach you a thing or two on how to really play on a jungle gym. In the wild, Gibbons spend most of their life in the tree-tops and swinging from branch to branch ( The term is called brachiating). To view more photos of Marley then visit Marley’s Gallery OR to view more photos of Sativa, then please visit Sativa’s Gallery.
Javi and Penelope are Red Ruffed Lemurs. They are both full grown adults. We have raised them since they were very young and they are extremely sweet animals. They are usually everyone’s favorite animal on our private tours (other than our cubs). When we have our tours, we take people inside their enclosure, and Javi and Penelope will leap into your arms! They expect you to carry them and they will lick you in return. It is a wonderful experience being around these guys, and they are truly beautiful and loving creatures. To view more updated photos of Javi & Penelope, then please visit Javi & Penelope’s Gallery.
The Zoological Wildlife Foundation was part of a Moroccan inspired Event on October 23rd, 2011. This was a birthday celebration, as well as a celebration for cancer survival. We brought Our Tufted Capuchin (Angie), and our Young Dromedary Camel (Aladdin). Teresita, who booked us for this event, wanted to share these wonderful photos she had from the event. We made a gallery with all the photos included, and we wanted to blog the photos to share them with everyone. Thank you Teresita, we are so glad that you were happy with the outcome of the event and thank you for sharing these wonderful photos with us as well! To view the rest of the photos from this past event, then please visit the Moroccan Event 10/23/11 Gallery.
We wanted to share this wonderful photo of one of our adult black and white Capuchin females, with her newborn baby Capuchin! This is a wonderful site to see. She seems to be taking great care of the baby so we will keep and eye on her and make sure the baby is doing fine and is healthy.
FFWC Lt. Patrick Reynolds had a retirement party thrown in his honor here at our ZWF Facility! There was many FFWC and wildlife officials at the celebration. It was a very special honor for us to host this event at our facility. We had our tiger cubs and primates out for photo ops, and everyone had a great time! It was a wonderful party, and we were glad to have been a part of such an important event. To view more photos from this event then visit Pat Reynold’s Retirement Party Gallery.
Marley was part of a wonderful occasion this passed Tuesday! He was part of a Birthday surprise!

White-handed gibbons brachiate, or swing by the arms, from branch to branch horizontally and vertically. Their long, strong arms enable them to quickly change direction in flight and to catch a handhold if they fall.
To visit our Gibbons in person then come by for a private tour! Check out our tour page for more info on our packages!
