SF Zoo Names Endangered Wolves After Prince, David Bowie, And Jerry Garcia

first_imgWe all know that Jerry Garcia played a guitar called Wolf, but it seems he’s the namesake for a real-live wolf now too! According to a report in Patch, the San Francisco Zoo has just taken in three Mexican gray wolf brothers, and the zoo has named them Prince, David Bowie, and Jerry Garcia. The Mexican gray wolf is the most endangered subspecies of wolf, making their conservation all the more important. The new wolf habitat mimics their natural terrain, and technological advances like automatic feeders and environmental detectors will only help keep these wolves safe.“Wolf Canyon isn’t just an exquisite exhibit, it’s an opportunity for San Francisco Zoo & Gardens to participate in the conservation of a species,” said President of San Francisco Zoo & Gardens Tanya Peterson said in a statement. The added musical tribute only makes these animals more endearing, as Bowie and Prince both passed away earlier this year, and Garcia is something of a heroic musician, especially in the San Francisco area.For more about the new Wolf Canyon exhibit, head here.last_img
