Saturday is the birthday of a great personality and animal lover who inspired a generation of zookeepers and conservationists. Steve Irwin would be 58 years old. We lost him way too soon, but I feel somewhat fortunate that his legacy lives on in his children and the Australia Zoo. Read More “ZooFit Workout of the Day- 2/20/20: Steve Irwin”

When I created my Conservation Hero WODs in 2017, I wanted a special workout dedicated to zoos in general. Zoos are great conservation organizations which work to protect and preserve the environment and animals on three separate fronts.

November 10-16 is Orangutan Caring Week, a whole week dedicated to the gentle giants of the Asian rainforests. Orangutans deserve a whole week, as their numbers are plummeting more each year. Read More “ZooFit Workout- November 12: Orangutan Care and Awareness Week”
According to Peppermint Narwhal’s Animal Calendar, today is National Cat Day. It doesn’t specify whether it’s domestic cats, or wild felines, but that doesn’t matter. Cats are cool, and they deserve a special day (and workout) in their honor.
