A Kid's Introduction to Black-Footed Ferrets
Take a virtual field trip to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs, Colorado to learn more about the recovery program for the Black Footed Ferret.
The only ferret native to North America, the black-footed ferret once thrived across grass prairies from Canada to Mexico. But today it is one of he most endangered mammals in North America.
To restore the native ferret population to North America's Great Plains, five zoos, including Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, have partnered with the US Fish and Wildlife Service in an aggressive captive breeding and reintroduction program that is making progress toward recovering the native ferret population.
