It's really important that we keep you informed about this developing friendship. Aisha and Sela are slowly becoming inseparable--when Sela's mom Eloise allows it. Tag the person you're inseparable from. #WorldOrangutanDay#ApesolutelyAdorable#SanDiegoZoo#InterspeciesFriends  ๐Ÿ“ท Liz Sauer

Important update: It was announced this week that Endangered Species Act (ESA) regulations have been changed and protections have been substantially weakened, allowing human economic considerations to be cited as reasons not to save animals. As an organization dedicated to the fight to #EndExtinction  , we must provide a voice for wildlife in need. At the end of last year, we added our voice to many other conservationists expressing concerns about these proposed changes, and we feel compelled to do so again in light of the current situation: โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ€ข Our mission is to save species from extinction. We are concerned that the changes to the ESA will make it more difficult for us to protect species across the world for future generations. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ€ข Here in San Diego we have a rich diversity of unique species, many of whom continue to find refuge in our county. The proposed regulatory changes will reduce many of the protections that these species currently have, reducing the ability of wildlife officials to protect their homes and provide for long-term recovery. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ€ข Our experts testified last week to request that the San Bernardino kangaroo rat be listed as a candidate for state protection. These protections are necessary because the last populations of the species are threatened with imminent habitat loss. We are concerned that proposed changes to the ESA would further weaken current protections for this species as well as many other species that are critical to ecosystem health, such as the California condor. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ€ข We ask that you join us in reaching out to elected federal officials to let them know you support a strong Endangered Species Act.

And the cutest lemur couple award goes to ... ๐Ÿฅ ... Agrippina and Thrax! Cozy up to this fun fact: Sifaka group members huddle together on cold nights. Individuals will sit single-file along a branch, to help retain heat. Some have described the sight as appearing similar to people on a toboggan. #sandiegozoo#cutestcoupleaward#sifaka#sdzooAfricaRocks  ๐Ÿ“ท Debbie Beals

Get ready to flip over this next penguin progress report. ๐Ÿง Doug is ๐—ข๐—จ๐—ง๐—ฆ๐—ง๐—”๐—ก๐——๐—œ๐—ก๐—š. Doug has done exactly what keepers were hoping he would do. He's gained self confidence and doesn't let the other teenagers bully him. Doug voluntarily appears at the VIP area almost every day and introduces his handsome self to tour groups. ๐Ÿง Molly ๐—ก๐—˜๐—˜๐——๐—ฆ ๐—œ๐— ๐—ฃ๐—ฅ๐—ข๐—ฉ๐—˜๐— ๐—˜๐—ก๐—ง. She's become VERY rude at feedings. Instead of taking her own fish from keepers, Molly prefers to chase other birds and steal their meal from their beaks. If she keeps this up the flock might revoke her dinner invitation! Molly definitely needs improve her table manners.  #penguinprogressreport#pengwinning#penguinbeach#sandiegozoo
