The Chattanooga Zoo has two new arrivals at its Deserts and Forests of the World Exhibition: a pair of roadrunners. One is named Meeks; the other, in true Looney Tunes style, is named Acme. WUTC's Mark Colbert visited the zoo to meet the speedy birds.
Spirits in the Wild is an annual fundraiser for the Chattanooga Zoo and this year the event includes a sneak peek at the Komodo Dragons that will live in the newest exhibit, Deserts and Forests of the World.
The Chattanooga Zoo is celebrating its 75th anniversary. In this segment, Marisa Ogles, the zoo's Director of Marketing & Communications, joins us to talk about zoo history--changes over the years, including the zoo's decline in the 1970s and modern revitalization. We also get the details on 75 Days Of Fun (including Hug A Bunny Day), the big celebration leading up to the 75th birthday party on June 16th.
