Have drinks with your friends while learning about the challenges facing both penguins and polar bears

Presented by Pro Photo Supply, Oregon Zoo Pub Talks connect you with conservation experts. Each month conservation, animal care or wildlife science professionals share their knowledge and experience saving animals across the planet, from the forests of Borneo to the skies of the Pacific Northwest.

At the January event, Oregon Zoo director Dr. Don Moore and Amy Cutting, who oversees the zoo's marine life area, will discuss the similar conservation challenges affecting polar bears and penguins.

While polar bears and penguins live in different hemispheres, both species face difficult futures because of human activity.
Learn what the Oregon Zoo is doing to enhance our knowledge and protect these important species. Find out what actions humans can take to protect penguins and polar bears while having drinks and snacks with your friends.

Doors open at 6 p.m. and the talk begins at 7 p.m., followed by a Q&A. Tickets are $15.

The event is located at the Oregon Zoo Cascade Grill. Food and beverages will be available for purchase.

Oregon Zoo Pub Talks are fun, educational events that help support the zoo's mission of creating a better future for wildlife through its animal welfare, education and conservation programs. Pub Talks are made possible by the Oregon Zoo Foundation's Education Endowment, which is generously funded by Oregon Zoo members and donors. Click here to learn how you can support the zoo.
