Denver, Colorado: Fourth Best Place for Job Seekers

With a 3.3% growth in population over recent years, Denver is an up-and-coming city.  Although the unemployment rate is fairly high, the relatively low cost of living improves the odds that a job seeker can afford to live there.  Denver’s top industries include aerospace, broadcasting and telecommunications, energy and healthcare.  The National Renewable Energy Laboratory is located in Golden, CO, and employment in the healthcare industry has increased by 23% in the last 5 years.

Denver Zoo

Registration for the Denver Zoo's Summer Safari camp begins January 29. The wildest summer camp in town is a fun-filled educational experience for animal lovers from Pre-K through 8th grades.

Denver Zoo Welcomes "Chewbacca" A Red Panda [VIDEO]

There is a new addition to see at the Denver Zoo!

Denver Zoo

A new male red panda has arrived at Denver Zoo as a suitable mate for the zoo's lone female, Daisy. Chewbacca, a 6-year-old, comes from the Detroit Zoo to continue Denver Zoo's successful conservation of the species. He spent the holidays behind-the-scenes, but now visitors can see him exploring his outdoor habitat.

Denver Zoo has been very successful in breeding red pandas.

Red pandas are classified as vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), with an estimated population of less than 2,500 mature individuals remaining in the wild. Their population continues to decline due to habitat fragmentation and hunting. Like their larger cousins, these lesser pandas eat primarily bamboo shoots.

Welcome to Denver, Chewbacca!
