The 2020 California wildfire season brought unprecedented destruction. According to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, California experienced 9,639 fires, burning more than 4 million acres of land. The fires had a devastating impact on wildlife, including three mountain lion cubs who lost their mothers in the blaze - with one suffering from severe burns. The rescued cubs were taken to Oakland Zoo for months long treatment and rehabilitation. They bonded closely, and once healthy enough, Columbus Zoo was chosen as their permanent home. FedEx stepped up to transport the cubs and got them safely to Ohio, where they enjoy the perks of guaranteed meals, and a safe environment to grow and play for many years to come.
