    We will gladly take her in. An enclosure will be built off-show in a half-acre yard in the Tropical Rainforest.

    Is this alright?

    We have just rescued two cheetah brothers when a female was found dead by hunters and the juvenile brothers were found nearby. While we are unable to house cheetahs as of this time, we’ve decided to ask the community if anyone who houses any females can take our males until a proper exhibit could be made. They offer important genetic material for the species. They are the northeastern African subspecies. The government already gave us the go ahead to send them out. Anyone interested? We are currently going foreword with building our East Asian exhibit so we will take any species from that region if you feel the need to trade. Information on that will be posted next month (tomorrow).

    I've made a google document of my species list for ease. If you see something you want, just contact me. I'll add breeding results soon.

    Today we will set up our first SSP. For a SSP to thrive, we need at least 4 zoos to take part in this.

    Please reply and give one candidate species for a SSP:

    Would you be interested in two brother northeastern cheetahs for any of your Asian species?

    Snow leopards seem to be popular and are endangered. They are kept in a number of zoos and are on of the few mammals I'm planning on housing.

    The following animals have been bred in the zoo this year:
    - 3 Bearded Belgian bantam chicken
    - 1 Onagadori chicken
    - 9 Mandarin duck
    - 1 Emu
    - 1 Laysan teal
    - 1 Tasmanian red-necked wallaby
    - 2 Emperor tamarin
    - 2 Golden lion tamarin

    I got these numbers using a random generator. I can elaborate if needed.

    My zoo is located in a semi-forested area outside of Burlington, Vermont. It will be 275 acres large. My starting budget will be $300,000,000.
    Eight species-
    Amur Tiger
    Pere David's Deer
    Grizzly Bear
    North American River Otter
    Bald Eagle
    Crested Oropendola
    Orinoco Crocodile
    Guira Cuckoo

    Exhibit Descriptions-
    The zoo is split into 3 sections:
    Asia- features large outdoor habitats for cold weather Asian species. This section is featyred around a large breeding center that can hold up to 20 amur tigers, in naturalistic outdoor habitats. There is 1 acre per tiger in this exhibit. A large outdoor area is also dedicated to the Pere Davids Deer. This section will start at 75 acres large and cost $100,000,000 to house the 2 species, build pathways, viewing area, restrooms, and a restraunt looking out on one of the tiger exhibits

    North America- This trail through the wilderness has wooded exhibits for the eagles, otters, and bears. All are very spacious habitats. It costs $50,000,000 and is located on 50 acres.

    South America- this area is inside to feature tropical species in an immersive environment. The free-flight area is 5 acres large- and features large groups of cuckoos, and oropendolas. The orinoco crocodile pair has a seperate area in the building. The building totals 10 acres and costs $50,000,000

    There are 140 acres of unused conservation land as part of the zoo and the remaining budget is $100,000,000. I should be accredited beacuse it would be the first zoo in Vermont, will be home to one of the largest immersive rainforest experiences in the world, and has a great program for breeding amur tigers and pere david deer.

    The Zoo will take the cheetah brothers, and wants to get the guenons and Pygmy hippos for the upcoming African Rainforest exhibit in exchange for a fee.

    The Zoo has built some enclosures for the African Rainforest exhibit, including a proposed monkey enclosure (we are negotiating to get Wolf's guenon and Drill). There are many watery enclosure, including one for Pygmy hippos which the Zoo is looking for. We have also built a paddock for Okapi. Meanwhile, behind the scenes we already have African Forest Elephant (1.3). We are looking for reptile, fish and bird species.

    Anyways, I think we should create scenarios for each other to make it a bit more realistic

    I am working on that currently. I'm thinking on something where we can have different tiles for posts, in which you can get help/advice from other zoos. Also, we have many zoo events coming our way :).

    Amur tiger is an endangered apecies that would be popular among visitors so might be a good option.

    Slow down there! :p You haven't been accredited, unless your goal is not to be. That's still fine, you just cannot participate in choosing SSPs.
    1. As the first zoo in Vermont, what do you have that will make visitors want to visit? In basic words, how would you advertise that would make it more interesting than just being "the first"?

    2. What breeding techniques would you use to get the Amur Tigers to breed with more success?

    3. How do you respond to animal rights group's views in a CONSTRUCTIVE way/

    We thank you for taking them but are we the ones who are going to give you the two species you listed as a fee for giving you the cheetahs? We also asked for a trade with any of your animals.

    Here are the answers to my questions-
    1. My zoo has an extensive collection of species- many are also rare and endangered. We have a large amount of tigers for a breeding program and also a very large walkthrough rainforest building.
    2.we would have 20 different acre large habitiats to keep the tigers seperate outside of breeding time. We would carefully monitor the tigers when we introduce them together and select our matches for breeding wisely.
    3.we would show how we exhibit animals in large and naturalisyic habitats. We would also show how our goal is primarily to breed endangered species for conservation purposes. Fpr outdoor exhibits I specifically choae species that can thrive in Vermont qonters and have tropical species indoor sp visotprs can still learn about them- as education is another large goal of my zoo.

    If anyone is interested in any species at the Vermont Zoological Garden, I am willi ng to trade for the following-
    Snow leopard
    American bison
    Amazon birds (particularly tinamous, but anything is fine)
    Anything fromt he sonoran desert- (for a new indoor exhibit)
    Rare Asian hoofstock (preferably cold seather tolerant)

    I would pitentially also consider any birds, or mammals from Asia or North America.
