• “The animal matchmaking program isn’t just for gorillas, and it takes some things into consideration that probably aren’t on Tinder’s radar. It scores every animal on a variety of traits (and when we say “every” animal, we mean there’s an entry for each flamingo in each American zoo), including social skills, age, experience, family history, and interpersonal relationships. Oh, and genetic diversity. Animals with rare genes are more valuable to breeding programs because their offspring will introduce more genetic diversity into the dating pool.”
