Keep it Cool for Polar Bears!

Join Como Zoo for International Polar Bear Day on February 27th

With International Polar Bear Day around the corner, Como Zoo has once again teamed up with Polar Bears International to honor polar bears on their special day. As the world’s leading polar bear conservation group, Polar Bears International launched the Thermostat Challenge to raise awareness about how our daily actions impact polar bear habitat. Tag us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram while using the hashtags #PolarBearDay, #SaveOurSeaIce and #ThermostatChallenge to share your pics!

Como Zoo encourages families, schools, and businesses to take part in Polar Bears International’s Thermostat Challenge by turning temperatures down in their buildings two degrees on February 27th to lower carbon emissions and help save polar bears. Participants are invited to bundle up in their favorite warm clothing, or for a fun twist, their ugliest sweaters, and take pictures showing how they are helping to save the polar bears.
