NAMING HIM PETER


About a year ago, the dream to bring a breeding pair of Giant Anteaters to the Santa Ana zoo was born. You may remember here, my telling you about early efforts to raise support to build a habitat for the future anteaters. And you may remember my telling you here about our having reached our fundraising goals to break ground to build the anteater's future home. Well, I am more than ECSTATIC to report that the adorable furry critters are finally here! Here's the boy anteater:

And here's the girl anteater:

Are they not the cutest things you've ever seen? They are the FIRST and ONLY anteaters in Orange County. They are still currently under quarantine to make sure that they get adjusted to their new environment as zoo staff keep a close eye on their health and adjustment. In June or July, we will have an official ribbon cutting where they make their debut with the public. 

The last leg of this campaign before the public meets them is that they need to be named. And of course, given that UC Irvine's official mascot is Peter the Anteater, it would be perfect to name the boy anteater Peter. In order to make that happen, we need to raise $20K to claim naming rights. For all you anteater fans out there, I hope you'll join me by making a gift to help us reach our goal to name the boy anteater Peter by going here to the UCI Alumni Association site.

ZOT!
