Polar Bear Week

November 11, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

It’s early November. It’s cold. And polar bears in the remnant wild are waiting for the sea ice to form.

Join the Louisville Zoo staff as we celebrate Polar Bear Week. This event, coinciding with the annual fall polar bear migration, serves to bring awareness to challenges polar bears face and the importance of protecting their sea ice habitat.

Adventure down to Glacier Run to meet our bears, seals and sea lions. Learn about polar bears and the challenges they face during our daily keeper talks. Zoo volunteer educators with animal biofacts will be in Glacier Run sharing fun information about bears and their habitats from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.

For more information on Polar Bear Week and how you can help polar bears, visit our partner Polar Bears International.
