Know your San Diego Zoo Safari Park history, like a zebra mom knows her baby's stripes? Then you know that over 37,600 animals have been born at the park since 1969, "including 23,000 mammals, 12,800, 1,500 amphibians, and 40 reptiles." Wowza, indeed.
Helping this baby bounty to thrive? The various breeding programs overseen by San Diego Zoo Global, which helps to "conserve numerous species, many of which are threatened or endangered, like the scimitar horned oryx, the California condor, and the Sumatran tiger."
And while springtime=new-baby-animal-time in many minds, bouncing beastie bambinos have a way of arriving at other points of the calendar. Adorable exhibit A? There's been a "late summer baby boom" at San Diego Zoo Safari Park. Take a look now at some of the brand-new bundles of beauty now making a home at the conservation-minded destination.
