At the Zoo - February 29 / 10:00 am

Join us for Polar Bear Awareness Weekend on Saturday, February 29 and Sunday, March 1 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. This event is free with Zoo admission.

Meet us inside Rocky Coasts Gallery to learn about Anoki’s daily care and the Zoo’s partnership with Polar Bears International (PBI), enjoy interactive stations, biofacts, and games, and find out what you can do to help save polar bears and the Arctic sea ice they depend on.

For a donation to polar bear conservation, guests can enter to win a behind-the-scenes experience with Anoki or a painting made by Anoki!

On Sunday only from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Amerks players will be at the Zoo to help raise awareness for polar bear conservation. The players will be available for a special meet-and-greet and to sign autographs.
