Zoo hosts conservation talks on butterflies, condors
The Oregon Zoo offers two Wildlife Talks on butterfly and California condor conservation this month at its new Education Center. Both talks are free but advance registration is recommended.
On Tuesday, March 14 at 7 p.m., experts from the zoo, Oregon Department of Corrections, the U.S. Forest Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will discuss their work restoring the taylor's checkerspot and Oregon silverspot butterflies species, and how people can take action on their behalf.
On Tuesday, March 21, at 7 p.m., Oregon Zoo and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service staff will discuss their work breeding condors for release and eliminating threats to their survival in the wild.
Condors are North America's largest bird, and one of the first species listed under the Endangered Species Act in 1973.
The Wildlife Talk series, sponsored by KinderCare Education, is free. They take place at the Conservation Hall at the new Education Center.
