Los Angeles Zoo - Los Angeles, CA

Though she was born last July, Fergie the baby koala (clinging to mama bear Georgie) only recently climbed out after six months in her mother's snuggly pouch to greet her adoring public. Baby koalas are called joeys, and start out at just 3/4". After a year, Fergie will leave the pouch for good.

Help Save Them at the Zoo

While zoos get some additional funding from local governments and private donors, you can help too. Consider donating to your local or favorite zoo to help assure the perseverance of some of these highly endangered species. Some zoos will even let you "adopt" an animal to help it thrive.
