Tampa Lowry Park Zoo Orangutan-Baby

Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo welcomes 2018 with the birth of a rare Bornean orangutan baby. The endangered primate was born in the early morning on Jan. 6, 2018, to experienced mother Dee Dee, weighing in at an estimated 3 pounds. There are fewer than 100 Bornean orangutans in 24 AZA-accredited institutions in North America, making this birth very significant for the species and the Tampa community. The baby will be the tenth Bornean orangutan born at the Zoo. (PRNewsfoto/Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo)
