Pub Talk: Recovery of a Flying Giant(not hosted by GlobalPDX)
November 14, 2018 @ 11:00 am$15.00
Oregon Zoo Pub Talks continue with an event focusing on the zoo’s conservation work with California condors
Presented by Pro Photo Supply, Oregon Zoo Pub Talks connect you with conservation experts. Each month a conservation, animal care or wildlife science professional will share their knowledge and experience saving animals across the planet, from the forests of Borneo to the skies of the Pacific Northwest.
The November pub talk will feature Travis Koons, who oversees the Oregon Zoo’s bird area, and the zoo’s non-lead hunting education coordinator Leland Brown, who will discuss the zoo’s work in bringing the critically endangered California condor back from the brink of extinction and eliminating threats it faces in the wild.
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.
