New York City is getting lots of winter snow and one inhabitant that loves it is Shelby, one of the snow leopards at the Bronx Zoo. Bronx Zoo has bred more snow leopards in captivity than any other zoo in the world. It also does a lot of work to protect snow leopards in the wild and help protect natural habitat areas. The Zoo recently announced they’ll open another snow leopard exhibit in the Central Park Zoo in Manhattan. ABC News article here.
