Episode 116 – Rick Barongi – The Houston Zoo

Rick Barongi, Director of the Houston Zoo (@houstonzoo on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss what goes into the running and expansion of a major zoo.  If anyone follows Craig on instagram (craigprice47) or on Google+ you’ll know right away how much he likes zoos and appreciates animals through his photography. Getting the opportunity to talk to the director of a zoo like the Houston Zoo was quite a treat. The two discuss the unusual situation at the Copenhagen Zoo regarding the euthanasia of a healthy giraffe and how it affects all zoos, the planned expansion of the Houston Zoo to include gorillas in 2015, the not so planned expansion of 6 additional chimpanzees recently as well as what goes into deciding which animals breed, like the new baby elephant and giraffe the zoos delivered this February.

You can learn more about the Houston Zoo at http://HoustonZoo.org.

This episode is also being used to raise money for Orangutan Outreach! Past guest Richard Zimmerman’s Apps of Apes is being utilized by the Houston Zoo so Craig thought helping out Orangutan Outreach indirectly would help out the orangutans at the Houston Zoo too!

DISCLOSURE: The Houston Zoo is not aware or affiliated with this specific charity drive. Any questions should be directed to Craig@SpeakerCraigPrice.com NOT the Houston Zoo.

How can you donate? If you purchase a 2014 calendar of Craig’s nature photography all of the profits will be donated to http://redapes.org. Several of the animals featured were photographed while at the Houston Zoo.

Simply follow this link to buy the calendar and help out!
