Belvidere’s Summerfield Zoo welcomes Canadian Lynx kitten
From press release
BELVIDERE, Ill.—Summerfield Zoo, 3088 Flora Road, Belvidere, Ill., has announced the arrival of a female Canadian Lynx kitten. Canadian Lynx are on the threatened species list, according to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.
Rick Anderson, member of the board of directors at Summerfield Zoo, explained: “The arrival of this kitten is very exciting. Lynx are a threatened species, so eventually we will look to obtain a male lynx and establish a breeding program. In the meantime, this kitten will be a great ambassador for the species, and will be helpful in educating the public about native and threatened species.”
Summerfield Zoo is open 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 21, and 11 a.m.-4 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 22. Admission is $5 per person, and all proceeds go to the care of all the animals, many of which are rescues.
Enjoy animal presentations, visit the petting zoo, shop the gift shop and view professional animal photography at Summerfield Zoo.
Summerfield is a not-for-profit organization providing an up-close and personal animal experience for the whole family. As a small zoo, visitors can get up close and meet many of the animals.
