The North Carolina Zoo is temporarily suspending operations
effective March 17 until further notice. More information.
Managing animals on a large, 40-acre habitat can be difficult when it comes to getting a close look at each animal daily. Training allows the Watani Grasslands Reserve's keepers to approach the greater kudu for visual inspections. They also hand feed the kudu, targeting individuals for oral medication as needed.
This species is cooperatively managed as part of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums' Species Survival Plan program program. This program is responsible for developing a Breeding and Transfer Plan for each species in the program.
