I was very saddened to see recent news of the death of a beautiful lion named Cecil. All of us at Denver Zoo have watched with heavy hearts as this story unfolded, remaining steadfast in our stance against illegal hunting.

This week’s feathered friend recognizes an endangered bird that Denver Zoo supports with one of its conservation projects. This week’s special feathered friend is a captive-reared piping plover chick (Charadrius melodus), who goes by many names, including "Smalls," "Tyrion," and "Daniel-son."
