    Just in case it wasn't already known, the bonobo twins Azibo and Ayubu, and the bonobo baby Akeena have all recently been paternity tested. The father of the two boys is Bondo, who is currently at La Vallée des Singes, and the father of Akeena is Birogu, one of the two adult males in the group at Wuppertal.

    Because of the construction of a new large walk-through enclosure - "Aralandia" - the Flamingo's have temporaly left the zoo and have been moved to ZOOM Erlebniswelt - Gelsenkirchen and Planckendael - Belgium.
    The new enclosure will house - next to the returning flamingos - a large group of macaws, parakeets and pudus.

    1. Milu exhibit is finished and the biggest part of the group already moved.
    2. Aralandia won´t be ready before 2019
    3. Pulau Buton will be started as soon as Aralandia is ready.
    4. New snow leopard enclosure is mainly located on the former bird of prey aviaries

    I have checked the website of Zoo Wuppertal and there are not statement that these six male dholes are from Kiangsi (Jiangxi)? In fact although Jiangxi Province is the last place in southeast China where there MAY be still dholes, no information showed that there are dholes exported to other countries... Thus may be the dholes are still Qinghai dholes?
