by the community.

In December, we had the pleasure of welcoming two new residents into our Sanctuary, “Suree” and “Malee”. These Clouded Leopard sisters are now about a year old,
and came to use as part of the Species Survival Plan (SSP). They were born and
raised in captivity at Zoo Miami and transferred to HPZS once we became an official
holding institution for this program. We are so very proud to be a part of such an
important effort, and we’re excited to have them here.

Clouded Leopards are a vulnerable species and this worldwide program
helps to ensure their survival. This is a species that does not breed well in the wild,
and on top of deforestation and illegal hunting, the population numbers for this cat
continue to drop.

There are few organizations that currently hold Clouded Leopards, so this
provides a very rare opportunity to educate our community and provide an up-close
look at an animal that most guests probably wouldn’t get a chance to see otherwise.
That being said, the Clouded Leopard is an incredibly elusive species, and we want
to do everything we can to help make them comfortable and feel safe. Aside from
generally being nocturnal by nature anyway, they have 24-hour access to their private
night house, and during the day often prefer to stay inside. They will venture out from
time to time – especially in the evenings and when the weather is warmer – but we
expect them to stay pretty private until they fully acclimate to their new surroundings.

We do hope you’ll come out and try to see them – we’re so happy to be able
to share them with you!

lined up, each featuring a different one of our most iconic

a full continental breakfast right up next to the featured animal. Our Keepers do a private feeding and discussion on the
animal, answering any questions guests might have. We have
members of our Education Department out to provide fun
facts and information on the featured species, and a craft
table for kids to do a fun, animal-themed project! These breakfasts make for a one-of-a-kind family experience and provide
a great opportunity to see and support some of your favorite
animals here at the Sanctuary.

This event takes place Saturday mornings here at
the Sanctuary, from 9:00 AM – 10:30 AM.
