The Detroit Zoo recently welcomed its new director, Dr. Hayley Murphy.

Murphy, who previously worked as director of Zoo Atlanta, is the first woman to hold this position at the Detroit Zoo’s 93-year history. She is also one of the nation’s leading experts in gorilla cardiac health. On today’s podcast episode, we talk about how Murphy is approaching her new position, habitat conservation, and, of course, the health of ape’s hearts.
