The Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society family is mourning the loss of one of its well-loved animals: Pegunita, a 10-year-old female bush dog. Born in a litter with two other females at the Zoo on August 29, 2004, she was documented as one of the oldest bush dogs in the United States. Her remaining sister Mona now holds that title at the Alexandria Zoological Park in Louisiana. Pegunita was humanely euthanized on January 5, 2015, after veterinary staff determined her kidney disease was progressively worsening, and no further treatment would help.

The Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society is celebrating National Bird Day by announcing the name of a baby bird that is beating the odds. Lalo is the new name for a male Indian pygmy gosling, born on August 23, 2014 to mother Dhati and father Madhu. Out of the 299 hatchlings of this species born in zoos over the past few decades, only 31 ever made it to adulthood, so Lalo as a four-month-old healthy juvenile is a success story.
