Michigan Zoo Applies for Authorization to Breed and Trade Protected Species

The Binder Park Zoo, an AZA-accredited zoo in Battle Creek, Michigan, has applied to U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service for Captive-Bred Wildlife registration for the following species: bontebok, cheetah, African wild dog, Panamanian golden frog, red-necked gazelle, Przewalski’s horse, snow leopard, ring-tailed lemur, black and white ruffed lemur, red collared lemur, and African lion. CBW registration would authorize the zoo to breed and trade in the protected species for a period of five years. FWS is accepting comments through November 19, 2021.
