Cheetah Program Receives ZAA Award
In November, Carnivore Curator Jason Ahistus and Director Emeritus Dr. Pat Condy traveled to Montgomery, Alabama for the 2019 Zoological Association of America (ZAA) Annual Conference. On behalf of Fossil Rim, they accepted a recognition award entitled “ZAA Long-Term Commitment and Significant Propagation 2019” for efforts specifically regarding cheetahs. Fossil Rim’s cheetah program began in 1985 and has led to the birth of 207 cubs. Program leaders over the years are (left to right) Jason Ahistus, Mary Jo Stearns, and Kelley Snodgrass.
