Spend the day with us at the Barbara Bonin Bear Habitat in the Rocky Coasts Gallery and discover the impact of polar bears on the unique arctic ecosystem.

At 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., watch a polar bear demonstration and chat with educators to learn more about this species and its adaptations.

At 12 p.m., representatives of the Scandinavian Heritage Society will present information about the relationship between humans and polar bears.

Activities and demonstrations will focus on how we care for our resident polar bear, Aurora, and how your Zoo helps conserve polar bears in their natural environment.

Games and activities led by docents and ZooTeens.

Members-only tours of the Rocky Coasts kitchen where zoo keepers prepare food for Aurora throughout the day.

Be inspired to take action to help save this important species from extinction. Make a pledge to take one small action that will protect polar bears or donate to Polar Bears International.
