The Racine Zoo is now offering CubCam so zoo visitors can watch the three lion cubs born July 8.

Resident lioness Azizi gave birth to two cubs mid-morning on July 8 and surprised zookeepers and medical staff when a third cub was delivered a few hours later.

Since then, the babies have gotten a lot of attention from the greater Racine community, and the zoo kicked off a naming contest earlier this month that ends Monday.

“The CubCam provides a really unique opportunity for people to view and be a part of something very special,” said Theresa Donarksi in a written release. “The cam is also a great tool we can use to educate both children and adults about this vulnerable species and the importance of taking action toward conservation.”

Donarski is curator of conservation and animal care at the zoo.

There will be a television monitor installed outside the lions’ enclosure so visitors at the zoo can also take advantage of the CubCam, and the cubs are expected to make their zoo debut Aug. 23 at 11 a.m. Visitors will then be able to see the lions from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily.

The Racine Zoo, 200 Goold Street, is open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Admission for members and children two and under is free, children two to 15 is $6, seniors are $7, and adults are $8. Racine County residents take $1 off with valid photo I.D. Call (262) 636-9189.
