Ooh, member for many, many years, there are advantages are there not including more opportunities to just Make that reservation these days to come and visit the zoo. There are you are exactly right. We love our members. We have ah, several 1000 strong membership here at the zoo and because we're privately managed. Our membership has been so supportive of of us over the last year when you remember you do get a few extra days in advance to be able to make those reservations. So that is One benefit that you get. We also have content and other programming that we're able to give out to our members as well as when we have number opportunities like Member previews or members on Lee Times when they're a different buildings, which we run periodically throughout the year. So we do have a lot of opportunities for remembers to engage with us in a deeper way, because they know a lot about our Conservation work that we do in the wild are science research that we do here our education programs that we're doing here on grounds and also in the communities in Chicago and also our work that we do with the animals and the plants here and when I said that Lincoln Park Zoo is much more than a place for the House animals And you said, Yes, it is It Z also an arboretum and you are now that that's of course, true, But I think that not only the Lincoln Park Zoo but most major zoos around the world.

They were definitely in a run over there. I mean, a couple zookeepers They're standing there. Taking notes or something, and I felt embarrassed being like this fourth grade. Immature, But there's a rut going on the Lincoln Park. So you are a good looking, I'll be back to pick you up later, baboon with Mr Microphone, I was going to say baboons endears Mr Microphone during the rut.

Yeah, she had the mud on him. He's like a good looking, but he did not move. I don't know why I'm stuck on the mixed their microphone thing. How fantastic would that be, though, if a deer actually held up a Mr microphone and start talking, That's a TV set. I'm going to go out in the forest and do this and see what happens.

NASA Announces Plans To Launch Chimpanzee Into Sun

"NASA is once again looking to further our knowledge of the universe and the effects. It has on life here on earth, which is exactly why the Space Agency is announced. It is now planning to launch a chimpanzee into the sun within the next ten years. The science world is calling the efforts a crucial step forward in solar exploration and better understanding how species react to being deposited into the sons twenty seven million. Degree plasma core for more on this monumental mission were joined by Opie our science reporter Rebecca Neal. Hi. Leslie Rebecca. How does NASA plan on pulling this off? Well, I, spoke with Nastas lead on the mission Tom Danes and he told me that chimpanzee will be put in a capsule that will contain several sophisticated instruments that would monitor how the animal reacts as it plunges into a burning ball of gas eight, hundred sixty. Five thousand miles in diameter. Here's Danes with some more details. The heat sensors to the chimpanzees body will provide us with real time data about what he's experiencing is he's in by the Sun's gravity as a close biological relative to our species. We believe his skin will react similarly to the sons extreme heat and aggressive UV radiation, and hypothetically his body will disintegrate at a similar rate to human beans right and if. The mission is successful. Hopefully, what we learned from this mission will pave the way for sending human astronauts into the sun on a regular basis. So is the idea here that there could maybe one day be a permanent colony on the sun for humans to get launch to in evaporate and a hellish fire on a regular basis well, Dan said that is a long term goal, but I they need to monitor how the. Chimpanzee handles the sons, ten thousand degrees, surface right patients whose key. Now, this is a bold mission but not the first of its kind correct. That's right a mission like this has happened before but on a smaller scale, for example, on NASA's first attempt to land on the moon with Apollo Eleven, the agency strapped and unprotected duck to the side of the space shuttle the duck perished immediately upon takeoff which helped NASA. Stand the benefits of being inside the capsule as opposed to outside of it. When shooting towards space, they've also experimented with abandoning several elephants on Mars and sending a capsule full of turtles deep into the void of space to be consumed by a black hole. These have all been instrumental to the revolutionary undertaking NASA announced today definitely what are the chances of something going wrong? Well, space travel is inherently dangerous as many Americans. Still, remember several horses never even made it into orbit aboard the space shuttle Challenger but Danes told me that they plan on testing their launch model thousands of times to ensure that the chimpanzee reaches the Sun's core safely before anything goes wrong on its way there there's no have any idea who will be manning this mission to the SUN NASA is keeping its potential chimpanzee roster under wraps right now but sources tell. Me The leading candidate is a seven-year-old chimpanzee named Bobo currently taking up residence at Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago. NASA

"All right Dave Byrne nearer is with us from the Lincoln Park zoo and the Lincoln Park zoo had a very blessed event you have never blessed events during this whole shut down but a very blessed event you a new baby macaque was born at the Lincoln Park zoo and I encourage Dave I know you're gonna encouraging but I'm gonna encourage them just as much as anybody if you have not seen the macaques at the Lincoln Park zoo it is one of the most interesting entertaining and are inducing things you're ever gonna see at a zoo they are amazing amazing amazing amazing little beings yeah absolutely well and all we can't wait for people to be able to come back and see them if their habitat but we do try to provide some video and photos of the tax former fans out there that was down there we put up on our website so that people can almost like we are yeah now let's let's talk about the mechanic for a second because people in me maybe not even able to visualize what they are they're they're monkeys there there from Asia that it almost exclusively in Japan exclusively in Japan yeah this is exclusively in Japan and it's all a company Norfolk occurring not human which is one of the reasons why we chose them to be in Chicago because they live in a very wide ranging climates but they can't I have a lot warmer summers as well as our cold winter days right yeah and there and it is amazing what to watch him and I don't know how you got this display worked out but then it's glass between the viewer and the macaques and attacks come right up to the glass and the that apparently they're not able to see the humans right I mean that's I think that nobody yeah they can yeah they kick you out oh wow because he seems to not be at all interested in what the humans are doing but they are so human like it is such a it's amazing amazing thing to watch them socialize because it's not like they're talking to each other but with the way they look at each other it's almost as though they're talking to each other and the way the family unit works you've got the mom and the dad and then the little kid and they'll get a line and they you know they clean each other server and and sometimes the you know the the the kid climbs up into up into them the mom like you know went into like her chest and everything and then dad comes and then they they all just make a big fall ball of the three of them together it is not hi there there's got to be I'm at some sort of science that that is being done about the way they behave versus other primates behave because I've never seen anything like it yeah there are two Japanese macaques would have a tremendous history will not be able resource at some point with optically for that reason each area of Japan where they have isolated populations of Japanese macaques all kind of created their own culture their own specific behaviors that they have I like the low one wants to live through the ocean the arduous group Archant behavior the Japanese macaques but high up in the mountains the high altitudes they're the ones that use the hot spring and at this particular a group of of macaques we have their behavior is this huddling behavior that they have because he walks over time they kind of they huddle and then they'll kind of rotate you know the ones with the local rotate out in the one on the outside okay events did they do that purposefully in order to make sure that roasting one kids at shocking to watch the I mean in a good way to watch I said the baby was born a couple of weeks ago yes well level as we had to born this year what was the market was able the one in April that the most recent one his name is always you is a little boy and almost always his mom and then the eagles are one that was born in March nettle girl now are they I commonly able to breed in captivity because I know a lot of the a lot of animals aren't is it okay for them all yes so the mechanics of working side mechanics force they are part of the species survival plan for Japanese macaques which is a a group that kind of helps the entire north American their consumer score in association population in school responsible breeding so this group of the we have here came from Japan and so they are not related to any of the other macaques in North America that means that you know all the animals they produce here are really valuable to north American population and so over time as our females and males eight the big place at other institutions for breeding which is going to help keep the population strong okay because if I want I can say this I saw one of them being made I don't know which maybe it was but in the in the summer like you know like I how long is our just Asian period because I can tell you almost to the day I think I took a picture the they they were very well let's just say the the Daddy macaque in the mommy macaque but love each other very much for that one moment and it was an interesting thing to watch because like it goes on for a little bit then they walk away from each other and then they get back together and then the babies are walking around it's it's it's a it's a it's a very strange ritual but again they're so human like it almost felt like I was watching something I should have been watching yeah I think a lot of people react that way because they don't have any inhibitions about with that behavior all up in front of anybody small groups of kids you know what that is all the funny thing about that is there is a social hierarchy well with the bail out separately and the dominant male of our crew he is not the sire of all the offspring that we've been able to technically determined it's the second ranking bail is the sire of all the all sport in under that age that on your book the mail that alpha male the going around a lot and kind of is on the exhibit and he has you know his relationship with her but he is recognized as the top macaque while his number two guy doesn't have to spend all that energy because he spends more time with the females okay believe he's the one that starts the ops I know people exactly like that I just want to say if they're too busy preening do anything important at it how old are these macaques lived to be I don't have the exact number in front of me but you know they could probably live into their thirties we don't know the ages of our mechanics that we have because doctors grand they'll have good records on that but of course today that are probably in their mid to late teens now they are amazing to watch Linkin park they were talking about this because it was at two macaques born in the Lincoln Park zoo and we think about all the things are going on outside of this is that are you know so hard to deal with and tragic but inside life goes on with these with all the animals in in the zoo and their and no one's allowed to come and see them at the moment is there a change in behavior of any of the animals that are there because they are not in encountering these are the crowds are or that that hustle and bustle that only can bring too often has yeah I think there is kind of an expectation by the animals that there's activity out in the park yeah but they've got a couple good so now I walk around the only person that they see for our time built all grab their attention you know because it's something to do with our buyer but let's hope they miss it so much is that they they recognize it that there's not as much activity in America but I want to people as they walk past exhibits here inside or outside of because you're just used to seeing markedly in the park yeah yeah that's it it's fasting and I hope you guys are able to open up quickly here because and see this is a great place in the summer and and again you have one the most unique exhibits I have ever seen in any zoo which is this macaque environment that you guys have this that I don't know how many are in there at that but that ten something like that twelve macaque out here about thirteen now thirteen to watch them interact with each other and you get right up next to him and get it right next to you it is is one the most fascinating things so Dave thank you very much they burn here from Lincoln Park zoo Preciado and others a virtual weaver let's go I want to do I get this and there is a virtual meet and greet to the Lincoln Park zoo is doing I have to do is just go ahead get on the Google and look that up it's very very cool I want to play news or not that is right no no no no no you want to play stump the

"South working, and so they're sort of at the mercy of the ocean. They'll get caught in the waves crash onto the shore, pretty, pretty severely, we've seen them with, you know, crock shells, broken bones and pretty poor condition. And so being that resource if acidity and taken the animals will take them in do all we can to rehabilitate them, and ultimately our goal is to send them back to southern California or Mexico so that they can be released. We, we see a lot of females that happens to and you know, it's really important because when you have an engaged population, just one, one female, that is rehabilitated and released can make a difference for that entire population of animals. And so this is sort of one of the major major pieces of work that we're doing with the turtles. And then we actually see usually over three hundred cases of wildlife. A year. That's can be anything from Segal to an endangered animal like turtle. Sometimes we'll have like northern I yield cops and things like that. That was yeah. That was my very next question of how many how many you see a year? And that's a lot three hundred is a lot of creatures, especially when as we're at the top of the program when a unique challenge that was brought up in a conversation with someone from the Lincoln park zoo, here in Chicago is if you go to a zoo aquarium, and you see a creature again and again, it's hard to it's hard not to make a disconnect between. Oh, I've seen this creature my whole life. And but it's wildlife counterpart. There may not be that many of them left. So when we think three hundred but and yet, they're seventy of certain kind of leopard, and things like that, that, that's really, really difficult when, when you're when you're talking about conservation efforts. So what is the one of the most endangered creatures that, that you get your aquarium? So I would say the most endanger that we get are some of the rare seabirds like, I mentioned, we got a western snowy plover. We've had really active habitat management for the snowy, plover species organ for about the past, I would say, two decades and because of his management that we've had. So we have a really good coordination that set up between the aquarium, US fish and wildlife. The forest service, we all work together on these on these process that essentially, they'll go out check the nest, you know, check the site he what's going on out there. And when they do find an animal dot is either abandoned. Sometimes we'll get chicks. Come in. We most recently saw female that about four years old. Shed a broken wing. But this is such an important individual because this female had actually mothered chicks pretty much every year. And so that one individual if we're able to rehabilitate it back into the wild that makes such different for that popular. Nation. And so, really, you know, these rare these rare birds than I would say, also the turtles, as well, one issue that we have come up a lot, as you know, Oregon's a really popular place for marine mammals. So whether that's sea lions harbor seals Wales. We also have very strict laws concerning, you know, whether or not we can interfere in these cases. And so it's hard because we're actually for marine mammals we can interfere in cases of human, 'cause suffering, so one example, is just this week. There was a sea lion has been entangled in fishing line. And so it was digging into its neck, pretty deeply. And so now we're working on a pretty large case to try to trap, the sea, lion. You know, get get to the animal take off the strain, treat the when it again. So, you know, every case is different and we have to have different strategies for it. Indeed. We're talking with Sally Compton, who is the communications and marketing manager at the. Oregon coast aquarium in Newport, Oregon. We're gonna take a little break and we come back. We'll continue this conversation about the specific challenges and programming that are happening there along these coastal waters.

"New event for us this brunch at our historic Cathy brower on the south side of the zoo. But the jolly old man sitting in this chair and talk to everyone for during the brunch. And in other new event that we have this year, which is really exciting. It's something that we've been trying to do. For several years now, but it's zoo Year's Eve, so it's going to be a new year celebration. Like, no other in the city. It'll be all under the zoo lights from nine pm till one AM bar set up and music setup. All the lights are going to be on animals with the keepers will be there to talk to guests during the not to ring in the new year from nine hundred to one AM. Andrea people can hang out at Lincoln park zoo. Yes. There's something about being at the zoo till one I am that just feels right and wrong and love that little a little of both. Yes, sir. Exciting. You know, you can find out more information at lpzoo dot org. And we have a lot going on, and it and it exciting. It's just a it's a fun time for the two. But it's just like Chicago Chicago get so deep into the holiday spirit, and it makes us all happy. It makes us any gear with a smile on her face true. Now one of the New Year's resolutions. People might be making his staying in better shape. And you've got glow flow yoga at the the the Stein small mammal reptile house. Now is that over by? I'm trying to figure out what I know that the area is like the most open it's like near the big snakes area. Even though they called small reptiles. This is a pretty sizable sakes. Yeah. No. It's a portfolio guys that through event for us to it's in small mammal house in the gallery. So it's just around where the snakes are there. Some some there's some spiders out there. But it's gonna be interesting because all the zoo like the core ruled. Yup. Obviously shut the lights down low. We're gonna give out like glowing bracelets growth, willing, necklaces, everybody as they come in any limited the capacity for that. Because I think I think thirty thirty to forty people won't be allowed. And and it's gonna be a fun one. We do a DeWitt program during the summer called fitness do which teaches yoga and doom by Pilates and meditation so this is kind of a special event for fitness at the zoo actually following that speaking of the new year, we're doing a Pilates with the primates on Super Bowl Sunday. What is going to be interesting? You know? So you you you like getting in shape for the new year? Getting in shape for Super Bowl Sunday. That's right. That's too funny. We have our regular listeners Tucker. Jamie says zoo lights are a great way to spend an evening. I've been to Cincinnati Toledo, Columbus, Ohio all unique. And yeah, I love club has the ice skating. I I agree with you though. Because when you when you go to Lincoln park zoo, there certain things that you have in mind, and I think especially I don't I don't remember seeing it was up by the farm. You said the ice skating last year. Was down south by the farm. Basically closed off the crop guard. And it was a forty by eighty ice skating rink which isn't huge, right. I think that's the other trick of it. It's more of a family focus just come and skate around a little bit. But again. So many other places in Chicago that does ice skating so much better than we do. So there's no reason for us to compete against that. We're about strolling. Yes, gliding. Yes. Exactly. And it's a different way to see a zoo that maybe you're familiar with it. You'll find something new every single time. I before we go. Josh I want to make sure is there anything we leave the table the people should know about because there's always like, I know that you guys have spots for kids can do some crafts. Have you moved that? Or is it still available because I used to be in the cat house. Members night only we you know, we we actually encourage people to to spend their time walking on staying outside..

"He kind of said, like, dude, you're, you're Slippin man. Like, you know, you need to great some filters and and get some stuff that's directly to us. He went into my g mail accounts, kinda kinda forced the issue for me, but so now I can't quite do that. I do wake up in the morning. Look at serve our Brazilian Social media messages, whatnot, kinda pick a random one and just answer it like I want to be involved in knowing what our customers are asking, what they're doing, what they're saying, what the replying, anything that's a complaint actually gets brought directly via Email to complain tracker that being grant see. And so luckily there aren't that many of those anytime you served five or six thousand people week, you're gonna get, you know some something going wrong. But man, I'm terrible at honestly, and I will tell you a funny thing is when I go in vacation, I do try to concoct a. A pretty funny basically, say, look, I'm going to be in a mountain or on a boat or whatever, and your mind Beal reply. And so I would make these elaborate stories up almost. It's like a fun piece of our project as to why couldn't do it. And so one year I every year, every time I went away, I basically said like, I'm going to visit a panda that is opted Chicago, and it ended the year round Christmas time when I went on break with a with a with a picture of a baby panda and and a really kind of mediocre Photoshop job of me standing. And Tribune called me up like three days later going, is it going to the Lincoln park zoo? Like? And I was like, no, dear God, it's not. And the folly there's no panda back to those might serve replied. And the foul year I said, like, I like to talk as you might be able to tell. And so everyone who knows me knows that like I can just go on and on, right? And so I said, I was going to accommodation of tantric sex retreat and silence retreat for eight days to explore, might both inner and outer self and. This is out of office reply. That's my out of office replies, and. And anybody would get that. Right? And so I thought that was really funny. And then about two years later, I bumped into some guy who worked for a very big corporation and they wanted to do some work with with dealing group, and it was like kind of a consulting project, very lucrative. And he is looking at really funny, you know, and I said, like what's up? And he said, well, you know, I really wish we'd worked together, but you know, then you went to that sex retreat. I just couldn't get it past everybody. And I was like, I was looking like, what are you talking about? And then I remembered like four years earlier by auto out of office reply. And I told him like that. It was kind of a joke like the panda and. And he did not find any humor in it in the idea I thought it was Larry is even though we lost business, I thought it was really funny. So if you ever get a really unusual out of office reply for me, it's fiction probably. I love that. I mean, if you're serious all the time, you never going to get the actual series done. You're gonna burn out before that ever happens. Also want to underscore one thing, and then I wanna ask you about a blackbox unite, talked about quite a bit, which is publishing the fact that you pick a message to reply to even if it's one is really important. And I've noticed this certainly with the audience that I have listeners, readers, cetera. It is not physically possible for me to reply to everyone. It would also be anathema to everything that I'm espousing in many of the books, but I do want to. I do want to demonstrate that I am listening and I think that it it goes a really long way even if you do not personally reply to people, if you are able to prove that you're paying attention and that seems to resolve a lot or at least act as a south. South for people out there who very seldom feel heard, which is not always necessitate a response houses wanted to point out that it might seem.

It in August of eighteen sixty eight the nation was just out of. The wrenching civil war, the great Chicago fire lay in wait three years from igniting and reshaping. The city and the commissioners of New York's, central park As an agreeable expression of courtesy and goodwill sent their. Counterparts in Lincoln park a gift of four. Swans that courtesy and goodwill the phrase comes, from the eighteen sixty nine annual report of the. Commissioners of Lincoln park has lasted for lasted for a century and a half and counting within. Five years of the swan gift the new Lincoln park. Zoo had nineteen species including bison peacocks and bear the first animal purchased for the, zoo was for the sum of ten dollars Ten bucks what followed as the free zoo marks it's it's. Anniversary has been a whole history of animals and their, human visitors and. Caretakers in forty nine acres of park land between Clark street and Lake Michigan So Let's. See Now, Dan you've was Lincoln park zoo a regular place that you would go and not too. Much Been there a few, times and it's been several years since I've been back but It's one of. Those things, where even if you don't go, for a long time it's always. Memorable. You know between the animals in? The mold a Rama and all that?

Still there haven't been Lincoln park zoo in years you knew there. Was a news story recently about them I can't remember if they were celebrating a first year they. Were getting rid of them but if they have them at the? Zoo, I've, never, seen them there. The field museum I have one from the field museum as. They used to. Have them at Lincoln park. Zoo and I, mean just not they might have them tucked away somewhere they would usually be at the entrance of one of. The houses like it would be like the monkey house or the or. The reptile house, or something like that that would. Usually be, like in, the hallway that you would stand oh Seattle Conan the reptile house You don't go to the monkey house no the Well. I I haven't seen him in the monkey house for the reptile I don't know 'cause I don't. Like I don't like if you're not a reptile they freak you? Out, it's, a, little too much Well I remember Dr Lester Fisher used to be on a Ray Rayner show and he was in charge of the, Lincoln park zoo and, he would, bring you know he would bring an animal rain or show or Ray would go on a trip to Lincoln park zoo. And visit doctor Lester Fisher who was a guy that was a staple of my childhood considering that he was on Ray Rayner show like almost every day and you would learn about the new. Animals and, stuff and yeah. We went there we went there pretty regularly and I can't believe it's a hundred and fifty years old and then right outside of Lincoln park there they have concerts, at the zoo and. I've been to I've been to several concerts, at Lincoln park, Lincoln, park. Zoo right right outside. The. Zoo, lights yeah Beautiful. It's awesome so they do so many great, things I saw, Steve, Earle. At the Lincoln park. Zoo It was pretty great so so Dan. Do. Any. Word it looks like, at Brookefield. But, not. At Lincoln. Park Brookefield they have the mold around. Yeah okay so at Brookfield zoo they do okay All right well you should read this, piece it's it's it's a lengthy lengthy piece that Steve Johnson. Wrote. About. The history of the, Lincoln park. Zoo And the changes that, it's gone through the animals that has had and the people who ran, it it's a terrific. Piece that Steve Johnson road it's. In the Chicago Tribune and you can check it. Out on, the, on the website as well. But Lincoln, park zoo one hundred and fifty years old the mold a Rama actually was started in Chicago Oh it, was you, know I, think I. Knew that nineteen, seventy-one yeah I think I knew that know we had someone on, years, ago Gary Lee right and I had someone on to, talk about that specifically, to talk about the Motorola there was a long time ago so I probably forgot probably forgot all the information that. We got from that but they're they're very, very cool very cool and, you know we were talking somebody requested the theme from the TV show, wonder falls and the. Mold aroma has a big part. In wonder. Falls because the the the mold aroma Lyon the. Sort.
