The ZooBorns blog was created by Andrew Bleiman and Chris Eastland. Set up to promote the vital work carried out in breeding programs in zoos and aquariums all over the world, and demonstrate how these programs help support conservation efforts in the wild.

Each page in the book has details of the baby animals name, species, home, date of birth and it’s status in the wild. It also provides some facts about the species as a whole, or quirky personality traits of the “ZooBorn”. This is of course accompanied by the all important pictures of the absolute cuties that the book has been produced to promote. You’ll find all the usual suspects inside as well as a few surprises, Short-Beaked Enchidna anyone?
