Join us for Artic Sea Ice & Polar Bear Awareness Week as we will be celebrating these amazing animals and the shrinking habitat they live in from Thursday, July 15 through Wednesday, July 21 both virtually and live at the Zoo. 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) and find out what you can do to help save polar bears and the Arctic sea ice they depend on.

Schedule for Live Enrichment Demos:

Make plans to come to the Zoo to watch as Anoki’s keepers provide her with enrichment food/exercises to stimulate her physically and mentally (and of course treats!).

Daily at 11:00 am and 2:00 pm
