Photos by Laura Poor, Zoo Supporter
After hearing about the death of our male orangutan Urban last week, Laura contacted us to share some of the wonderful pictures she had taken over the years.
"I wanted to give you some of my favorite photos of Urban and the others. And express my thoughts to all of you who got a chance to work with such an amazing ape." - Laura
The Zoo has been so grateful for the outpouring of support from the community and hearing what Urban meant to them. He was truly a special creature, a great ambassador for his species and we will miss him dearly. You can find out more about Urban in the Sacramento Zoo press release.
Here is a slideshow of Laura's photos.
