SAN DIEGO – A 10-month-old koala joey born at the San Diego Zoo was named Monday, zoo officials announced today.
Kirra received 40 percent of the votes.
She can be viewed in a temporary exhibit until she moves into new digs later this month, the 3-acre Conrad Prebys Australian Outback. The exhibit is scheduled to open during Memorial Day weekend.
Kirra can also be viewed on the zoo’s Koala Cam.
