Apes Eat Local

Listen Now

Gorillas at the Denver Zoo are joining the eat local movement. The zoo is now buying Colorado produce to feed its great apes and other animals. The animals are eating a variety of locally grown fruits and vegetables including lettuce, squash, cucumbers and carrots. John Azua runs the program for the zoo. He tells Ryan Warner that apes can be sensitive eaters, just like people.
