Brevard Zoo to get 2 endangered Grevy's zebras
VIERA, Fla. (AP) — Two endangered Grevy's zebras are moving into Brevard Zoo's Expedition Africa exhibit.
Deputy zoo director Jon Brangan told Florida Today (http://on.flatoday.com/XChaax ) the two female zebras will arrive shortly after Christmas. He says they'll be sharing space with the rhinos.
The rhino yard will be renovated, starting in October. The $125,000 project includes a zebra barn, an additional 125 feet of pedestrian boardwalk and a new 20-by-20-foot covered viewing platform.
The zebras will arrive in Viera from White Oak, a wildlife conservation in Yulee. They'll be given some time to get used to their new surroundings before being introduced to the three rhinos they'll share the yard with.
A grand opening ceremony is planned for February.
