At Expedia Viewfinder, we strive to enjoy the holiday season to the fullest during our travels. Whether it’s watching ice carvers sculpt masterpieces or folk dancers take the stage, we like celebrating all month long. To learn how we could fully embrace the holiday season this December in the Mile-High City, we turned to our friends at Denver Zoo in Colorado.

Earlier in April, Denver Zoo shared a free viewing of the film “Girl Rising.” The film highlights the stories of nine girls living in the developing world, striving to reach beyond their circumstances and overcome nearly insurmountable odds to achieve their dreams.

Spring is definitely upon us. Trees are budding, flowers are sprouting and at Denver Zoo, we are preparing for the upcoming summer season. We are expecting several new babies, like a new tapir, and getting ready to say goodbye to one of the animals that was born in 2013. Snow leopard Misha, who will be 1-year-old on May 13, is getting ready to move to her new home.
