The late Julia Wasserman has been remembered during an event at the Bearedsley Zoo in recognition of her long-term service to on the Board of Directors, and in gratitude for a bequest. The former Newtown state legislator, who died in 2015, was recognized this afternoon with The Julia Wasserman Maned Wolf Experience. The event celebrated the first birthday of three rare Maned wolf pups. A $20,000 bequest in her will was supplemented by an additional $50,000, a discretionary distribution from the estate. The event today featured special educational talks in front of the Maned wolf habitat, birthday treats and enrichment for the Maned wolves. The development of a Species Survival Plan enabled the breeding of Maned wolves in human care.
