Essentials: Polar Bear Pedagogy at Assiniboine Park Zoo

Part cub nursery, part education centre, Assiniboine Park Zoo’s new International Polar Bear Conservation Centre will save furry lives and teach people how to protect the species.

The unique facility boasts an interpretive gallery with interactive games and multimedia displays about the majestic Arctic mammals and the impact global warming has on their survival. Education is just one of the centre’s three pillars; it’s also the hub for northern-research initiatives and will eventually nurture orphaned polar bear cubs.
