This #SnowyOwlSunday includes a blast from the past. The Tulsa Zoo has a long history with Snowy Owls, having exhibited this species continuously since 1970.
For most of the 1970’s, Tulsa Zoo keeper’s uniforms were distinguished by a patch featuring a spread-winged female Snowy Owl perched on the pages of an open book, symbolic of the importance of zoo exhibits for educational as well as recreational value.
This year’s four chicks are the great-grandchildren of Tulsa Zoo’s 1990’s breeding pair. Visit them in WildLIFE Trek: Life in the Cold at the Tulsa Zoo.
