Meet the cubs at Snow Leopard Day

Posted by: Rebecca Whitham, Communications

Don't miss the debut of the snow leopard cubs tomorrow, Saturday, August 15, at noon during our 3rd annual Snow Leopard Day. The male cub will get his name--chosen by your votes--and the public will see the cubs take their first official steps into the exhibit!

Enjoy a full day of activities (9:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.) celebrating one of the world’s most endangered and elusive wild animals. The third annual event is hosted by the zoo and its conservation partner, the Snow Leopard Trust, to highlight the fascinating adaptations of the snow leopard and critical conservation efforts to protect them in the wild. Activities include:

* Keeper talks and special enrichment for the snow leopards
* Conservation talks by Snow Leopard Trust
* Book launch and signing of "Saving the Ghost of the Mountain: An Expedition Among Snow Leopards in Mongolia" with author Sy Montgomery
* Snow leopard-inspired crafts for kids
* Special themed programs for kids in Zoomazium
* Conservation commerce made by artisans to help support snow leopard conservation
