Arguably the cutest, most adorable publication to have ever been created, ZooBorns is a zoology website and educational book series that announces animal births born in zoos and aquariums around the world. Last month, they released their lastest book from their series, ZooBorns: The Next Generation, which features fascinating facts and endearing photos of exotic animals from all around the world.
As with their book series, also including ZooBorns CATS!, ZooBorns (for all ages), and ZooBorns! (for young children), their website showcases these precious babies as individuals. Their website states, “We include their name, date of birth, home zoo, and fun facts about their unique personality as well as the conservation challenges faced by their species.” The website continues to say that the company strives for a higher purpose beyond entertainment with these “aww-dorable” pictures, “we seek to build awareness about the ways breeding programs at accredited institutions help support conservation efforts in the wild.”
Furthermore, 10% of all ZooBorns book’s proceeds are given to the Association of Zoos and Aquariums Conservation Endowment Fund, which has been supporting “cooperative conservation-related scientific and educational initiatives of AZA and AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums and their collaborators” since 1984.
Yesterday, ZooBorns.com published their 2,000th post since 2008 and tackled the extremely difficult, seemingly impossible task of naming “Top 25 Most Popular Baby Animals.” Here are a few highlights from the list:
