We care about you!
The Pub Talk scheduled for April 8 has been cancelled out of an abundance of caution for the health of everyone involved. The Oregon Zoo and Metro are working closely with the Oregon Health Authority and the county public health agencies to ensure we are following the most up-to-date guidance related to COVID-19. While there is no recommendation to cancel meetings of fewer than 250 people at this time, we do know people at higher risk of getting sick should avoid non-essential gatherings. As excited as we are to share the Pub Talk experience with you, we want to do our best to keep everyone safe and healthy. We don’t know when we will be able to reschedule this event, so we are refunding your pre-purchased ticket. Please allow 7-10 business days for this credit to be applied to your account. Please stay tuned to oregonzoo.org for more events in the future.
Derek Lee and Monica Bond of the Wild Nature Institute will discuss their long-term conservation research and community education to save giraffes in Tanzania. Over the past decade, Lee and Bond have been using giraffes’ unique spot patterns to recognize and monitor thousands of individuals in some of the world’s most iconic national parks and surroundings, to understand how food supply, disease, natural predation, humans, social relationships and even spot types help or hurt these gentle giants.
