First Ever Kiwi Born at Zoo Miami

For the first time ever in the zoo’s history, a North Island kiwi hatched at Zoo Miami!! This is not only a first for Zoo Miami, it is a first for the state of Florida and much of the Southeastern United States!! Zoo Miami received the fertilized egg on March 15th from the Smithsonian National Zoological Park where it was laid on January 29th. The egg was sent to Zoo Miami as part of a special loan agreement between the Smithsonian National Zoo in conjunction with the Government of New Zealand which is where kiwis are naturally found and where it is the unofficial symbol of the country and the nickname given to its citizens.

Carvalho: “We’re Not Done Yet”

Asking someone to host 150 people for lunch with less than thirty-six hours’ notice and reconfigure a facility space at the same time isn’t a call a business looks forward to. Mother Nature will be what she is though, and Denisse and Peter Schnebly are accustomed to hard work at Schnebly’s Redland Winery, or in this case the Brewery Taproom. The South Dade Chamber of Commerce luncheon featuring Miami Dade County Public School Superintendent Alberto Carvalho was planned months ago to showcase another Redland venue; a venue not suited for the soggy day of Tuesday, March 19, 2019. Kerry Black, CEO of the Chamber, the two staffs, and a lot of hands pulled off the swap. Chef David Dreilinger and his team made what seemed to be a seamless rapid shift of locations. The Chamber’s theme this year of highlighting Redland, agritourism, and the “Locavore Movement” was on full display with the gourmet food served.
