Happy Birthday to Finnigan, The Island Fox
One of our favorite island foxes just turned 1 year old.
Finnigan, or Finn for short, was born last year at the Santa Barbara Zoo. Because his mother is an older fox, she did not nurse him and the Zoo staff had to hand raise him. See Finn's baby picture.
Fortunately this little island fox had the perfect personality to become an educational representative for all of his wild cousins. Finn makes guest appearances at special events at the Santa Barbara Zoo.
The Santa Barbara Zoo actively participates in island fox conservation and is the home of Finnigan, his parents, and two other island foxes. For more information on visiting the Santa Barbara Zoo and seeing the island foxes that live there.
Friends of the Island Fox sends our best wishes to a hard working island fox.
Happy, Healthy, First Birthday, Finnigan !
