Turning Off Your Lights = Saving Polar Bears!
Earth Hour, Saturday March 31, 2012 - 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm
Climate change is the single biggest threat facing polar bears. By reducing our carbon emissions we can help slow or even reverse climate change to protect the sea ice these bears depend on for survival. From the Zoo's polar bear family to yours, let's do our part to stop climate change and turn off the lights!
Toronto Zoo will be turning off all non-essential lights to support this important cause, and we hope you will do the same! For more details on the Toronto Zoo's Conservation Initiatives CLICK HERE!
