Bison Named

Wilma (from National Zoo) 
The votes are in and we now know the names of the the National Zoo’s two female American bison. Students at Gallaudet University name one of the bison Wilma while Howard University students picked Zora for the name of the other. Both schools use the American bison as school mascot. Wilma was named after Wilma Newhoudt-Druchen. She became the first deaf woman elected to serve in South Africa’s parliament and is joining the Gally Board of Trustees this fall.
