Last week, Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo and Seneca Park Zoo officials announced that a third zebra, a five-year-old female named Lydia from Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, has arrived at the Zoo. Lydia was born September 18, 2013 and has lived at Columbus Zoo since she was a month old. She joins two other female zebras, Liberty and Dottie.
In a related move, female ostrich, Echo, moved to Columbus Zoo to join their flock. Lydia’s arrival in Rochester created the perfect opportunity to place Echo with other ostriches. We will miss Echo, but we know this is in the best interest of her overall welfare.
