UPDATE: Betty & Angela & Lulingu

It’s January, and we’re celebrating two of our favorite friends. Cherished longtime Zoo champion, trustee, and donor Betty White’s birthday is January 17, and our feisty western lowland gorilla, Angela, is turning four years old on January 18! Betty’s story and Angela’s have been woven together since our beloved Betty passed away in December of 2021. Now it’s time to remember and celebrate with Angela & Lulingu, a picture book created with funds donated in Betty’s honor.
