Riverside Discovery Center staff has confirmed that the new Plains Zebra foal born on April 4, 2016 is a female. The young zebra has already grown in the last month and her and her mother Zelda are doing great! RDC is asking the public for help in naming their newest addition to the zoo.
Name suggestions can be sent to Riverside Discovery Center by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or in person in the gift shop. To submit a name you must put “Zebra Name” in the subject of your email, and include your name and number. The person who’s name is chosen will win a fun prize!
RDC staff will choose the top 5 names out of all suggestions submitted, and the public will be able to vote out of the top 5 names on May 8 during Mother’s Day. On that day all mother’s will get in free if they come with their family, and anyone can submit their vote for the new name in the gift shop.
“This is a fun way to get the community involved and excited about our newest cute addition to Riverside Discovery Center. Guests have already enjoyed watching her grow in the last month, we’re eager to give her a name!” says Anne James, Executive Director.
