CALM celebrates the birth of three Desert bighorn lambs
Three endangered Desert bighorn lambs were born within 48 hours of each other on April 29 and May 1, 2015.
Esther (11 years old)-This is her tenth lamb which is one of the females. She is a wonderful mother and the lead ewe in the herd.
Emma (four years old)-This is her second lamb and she gave birth to the male.
Diane (two years old)-This is her first lamb (female). Diane was also the first lamb born at CALM (her mother is Esther).
Banner (seven years old)-The proud father is a little overwhelmed but doing just fine!
Three years ago, CALM received two ewes from the San Diego Wild Animal Park and one ram from the Los Angeles Zoo. This is CALM’s first cooperative breeding program partnership.
From the 2014 census, CALM is home to seven of only 47 Desert bighorn sheep on display throughout the country.
