Denver Zoo Welcomes First Przewalski's Species Horse In More Than 20 Years

There is a new baby at the Denver Zoo! The first of its species at the zoo in more than 20 years! 

Denver Zoo
Denver Zoo is celebrating the birth of an endangered Przewalski's (sheh-VAL-skee’s) horse foal, born this morning, May 31. The unnamed foal, whose gender is still not known, is not only the first birth for mother, Yisun, and father, Bataar, but also the first birth of its species at Denver Zoo since 1991. The foal is quietly exploring its yard under the watchful eye of its mother, but guests can see them both from the zoo’s main pathway now.

The Przewalski’s horse is considered the only remaining, truly “wild” horse in the world and may be the closest living wild relative of the domesticated horse. There are a number of other wild equine species, including three species of zebra, and various subspecies of the African wild ass, onager and kiang.

Denver Ranked 5th On The ACSM's 'American Fitness Index'

Colorado is known for being fit with all the outdoor activities we can do throughout Denver and the mountains! Denver was ranked fifth on the American College of Sport Medicine’s, American Fitness Index™.

Similar to an annual physical or wellness exam, the sixth annual report evaluates the preventive health behaviors, levels of chronic disease conditions, health care access and community resources and policies that encourage healthy and fit lifestyles. Included in the report’s latest edition are benchmarks for each data indicator to highlight areas that need improvement.

The metropolitan statistical area (MSA) of Denver-Aurora-Broomfield scored 68.1 (out of 100 possible points) in the 2013 report, up four spots from last year. In 2012, the metro area ranked ninth with a score of 65.6. Minneapolis-St. Paul achieved a high score of 76.4 to capture the top ranking for the third consecutive year.

Denver ranked fourth on personal health indicators related to health behaviors, chronic health conditions and health care access. The area ranked 14th on community/environmental indicators associated to the built environment, recreational facilities, park-related expenditures, physical education requirements and primary health care providers.

Colorado Freedom Memorial Dedicated Over the Weekend

As we remembered those that have served over the Memorial Day Weekend, a very special dedication was made in Colorado! 13 years in-the-making, the Colorado Freedom Memorial located near Springhill Golf Course on a four-acre parcel near Buckley Air Force Base in Springhill Community Park at 756 Telluride Street in Aurora, Colorado, was officially dedicated to honor those that have served. 

Colorado Freedom Memorial, Facebook

About the Colorado Freedom Memorial:

  • The Colorado Freedom Memorial is made of glass and stands 12 feet tall and 95 feet long. It's base is tiled in granite.
  • The panels of glass that make up the memorial lean forward and back, representative of men falling in action. A trough of water runs in front of the memorial, representative of the oceans that separate Colorado from the fields of battle.
  • Nearly 6000 names appear on the wall. They are grouped by war, but names will not be alphabetically listed. This will allow for additions as they are discovered.
[  ]

How did this get started? Denver radio host, Rick Crandall, KEZW's Station Manager and Breakfast Club Host started working on this idea in 2000 and on Sunday, it all became reality!

Thank you, Rick!
