PRIMARY POLAR BEAR PROGRAM (K - GRADE 3)

Chill with our polar bears in the “coolest” program at the Zoo! Students will learn about the individual Zoo bears, cool creature features and adaptations, their life cycle, and behaviours. Your students will “bear-ly” be able to contain their excitement!

JR/INT POLAR BEAR PROGRAM (GRADE 4-8)

Discover how the species Ursus maritimus is perfectly adapted to an environment that few animals can “bear”. Together with Zoo staff, determine the important role that polar bears play in their Arctic ecosystem, what threatens their survival, and how we can make a difference.
