More than 20 life-like animatronic dinosaurs hide in beautifully planted foliage for a fully immersive experience.
WCS has been working to save some of the most endangered turtles, an effort that combines the creation of assurance colonies at its zoos with in-country field conservation work.
More than two dozen animatronic dinosaurs now reside at the zoo, as part of an exhibit opening May 25 that will take New Yorkers to the Cretaceous and beyond.
Penny Kalk began working with elephants at WCS’s Bronx Zoo in 1976, looking after the youngest members of the herd. Today, she continues to oversee their care as Collections Manager for the Mammal Department. With her intimate understanding of individual animals, Kalk recently traveled to Laikipia, Kenya, to aid field colleagues studying elephant demographics and movement patterns.
