Hello ZooLex Friend,
We have worked for your enjoyment!
NEW EXHIBIT PRESENTATION
The redevelopment of a sea lion enclosure at Chester Zoo allowed the
creation of a Giant Otter facility that was particulaly designed for

with underwater viewing and interactive elements with messages about
biology and conservation of this species.
We would like to thank Chloe Helm for presenting this exhibit in ZooLex.

browsers. Who protects the plants that lack thorns? Perhaps lions!
. Diverse native plant communities protect themselves from invasive
plants by harboring hungry hungry caterpillars. Many a truth is revealed in
. As increasing CO2 levels acidify oceans, verdant seagrass beds
protect marine life from harm.
. With the climate and ecosystems changing, what's the landscape
restoration community to do? Assist landscapes in becoming the next great
thing? Or sit back and see what happens?
It is stinkbug season here. Taking a page, perhaps, from the lionfish
control handbook, some now propose eating them
