Saturday, February 25
10AM – 2PM
Included with general admission, or your zoo membership.
Help us celebrate our two resident polar bears, Nikita and Neva. With special polar bear enrichment and keeper chats, you will have the chance to learn about the individuals housed here at Utah's Hogle Zoo, but also how you can help polar bears living in their natural habitat. There's still time to help save the Arctic sea ice, and we need your help!
Polar bears are considered marine mammals due to the amount of time they spend on sea ice, where they hunt for food. Polar bears cannot successfully hunt, mate, or raise cubs without expansive sea ice.
There are only around 25,000 polar bears left in their natural habitat today. Polar bears were listed as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act in May 2008. This listing was based on the loss of sea ice in the arctic region threatening, and continuing to threaten, polar bear habitat.
Together, we can make a difference. #SaveTheSeaIce #WeSupportPolarBears
