International Polar Bear Day

Wednesday February 27, 2019 

It’s International Polar Bear Day!

Join us in the Tundra Trek today to meet our five polar bears, Nikita, Aurora, Hudson, Humphrey and Juno. Plus, meet one of our polar bear keepers at our daily 12:00 pm Keeper Talk to learn about what the Toronto Zoo is doing to save and protect this species and how you can help!

Bundle Up For Polar Bears
We also invite YOU to join the thermostat challenge! By keeping it cool, you’ll be reducing your CO2 emissions and raising awareness about how taking action now can help protect the Arctic sea ice that polar bears and other polar species depend on for survival. Turning down your thermostat by just two degrees over the winter can reduce a typical household’s CO2 emissions by 225 kg. In fact, if every Canadian household did this, it would be equivalent to taking over 350,000 cars off the roads! Together we can make a difference!
