Earth Day Festival Outcome!

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010


This past Saturday on April 24th, The Zoological Wildlife Foundation was part of an Earth Day Festival at the Pinecrest Gardens. ZWF did a presentation with the animals every hour on the hour, and it was a great success! We had nothing but positive feedback about our presentation. The bleachers filled almost every time and we put a smile on many peoples faces while we walked around with our animals and let everyone touch almost all of the animals we had for the presentation. Overall, it was a wonderful event that had a great turn out! ZWF would like to thank Pinecrest Gardens for letting us be part of such a wonderful event.

The Zoological Wildlife Foundation recently had another event with Miami Subs Grill to raise money for a new Tiger Habitat. This event went extremely well and we managed to raise a lot of money to go towards the construction of a new tiger habitat. We sold ZWF T-Shirts, had photo sessions with a variety of different animals, and accepted contributions, all for the cause. If you missed out on this event, don’t worry! ZWF and Miami Subs Grill will be having another event soon, so come check back regularly to see when we post up our next event!

If you would like to see Cacatua up close then come by for a tour at our facility! It’s an experience you won’t forget.

What has a 16-inch-long sticky tongue, prehensile tail, and an unpleasant odor?

Monday, March 29th, 2010

If you guessed the Lesser Anteater or Tamandua then you are correct!

Tamanduas are found in Mexico, Central America, and South America. They make their homes in tropical rain forests and savannas. If the tamandua is threatened, it will release a foul odor from a gland at the base of its tail similar to a skunks. These guys eat about 9,000 ants in just one day! Mom and baby Tamandua are doing just great here, they truly are beautiful creatures! To see more photos of the Tamanduas, click here to visit our gallery, or if you would like to learn more information about Tamanduas click here for our info page.
