Rock the Vote: Klipspringer calf at Lincoln Park Zoo needs a name

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The new klipspringer calf at Lincoln Park Zoo needs a name and the zoo needs the public’s help deciding on it.

Klipspringers, meaning ‘rock jumper’ in Afrikaans, are native to central and eastern Africa. This has inspired Lincoln Park Zoo’s staff to produce five Swahili names for the female klipspringer. People can choose between the names Nadra (special), Zuri (pretty), Amira (princess), Asha (hope) and Bahiya (beautiful).

To vote, visit Name the Baby.

Voting opened Tuesday and will go through noon on May 14. The winning name will be announced on May 15. Votes can be casted once a day throughout the deadline.
