Zoo Babies presented by Norton Children’s

Welcome to Zoo Babies presented by Norton Children’s!  Here you will learn about the latest births at the Louisville Zoo, as well as births you can look forward to. Follow along with pregnancy updates and join the journey as these animal babies grow up to become amazing ambassadors. There are even live camera feeds for the animals that are not yet on exhibit.

Zoo Babies reminds us that each birth can help people learn about these species and their needs as well as encourage us to “better the bond between people and our planet” and help protect our animal friends.
