Overcoming adversity, on both feet again! Harris’s hawk, 'Geum-Ji'
  • Registration Date2021.09.24

In 2013, he got injured and the lower part of his ankle had to be amputated.

Legs are especially important for carnivorous birds because they have to stand on two legs and eat with their feet!

With the efforts of zoo keepers and veterinarians, 'Geum-Ji' has regained its precious daily life through the production of an optimized prosthetic leg.

Please support Geum-Ji, who has regained his daily life with a prosthetic leg, and his best friend, ‘Ok-Yup’, to live a happy life!
