The San Antonio Zoo is making big waves in conservation thanks to one tiny arrival. Born in August, this baby Matschie's tree kangaroo is beginning to gradually explore her new world outside of her mother's pouch. With less than 2,500 Matschie's tree kangaroos in the wild, this is a significant birth for the endangered species and for the San Antonio Zoo.

Born on Saturday, July 25, 2015 to first time parents, "Tau" and "Sarabi", the San Antonio Zoo's three lion cubs are growing fast!
African lions are found in most countries of sub-Saharan Africa, and they are the most social of the cat species. Their population in the wild has decreased 42 percent in the past 21 years.
The San Antonio Zoo, along with other Association of Zoos and Aquariums institutions, participate in the Species Survival Plans and track the genetic make-up and breeding of animals. This process works to keep species thriving in captivity as the populations are often declining in the wild.
