  • Conservation Lecture Series: Florida's Amazing Black Bears

    Jan 18th, 2018
    6:00pm - 8:00pm

    Florida's Amazing Black Bears with Mike Orlando

    Bears are amazing! They can climb a 100' tree in 30 seconds and even clamber up rock walls. (Seriously. Watch the video). They can run 35 mph - about as fast as a deer. Bears are also reported to have the best sense in the animal kingdom with a sense of smell estimated at 7 times better than a bloodhound!

    Bears are also coming back in numbers in Florida. After dropping to just a few hundred bears in the 1970s, there are now more than 4,000 in the state. Join us to learn the best ways we can live together with these large carnivores from one of the leading experts in the state.

    Visit the Naples Zoo bear page to see how you can help in your neighborhood today.

    Gather along by the black bears for an informal mixer from 6 to 6:45 p.m. in the gardens followed by his presentation and Q&A in the Safari Canyon open-air theater from 7 until 8 p.m. Please dress comfortably for this evening outdoors. 

    Cost: General Public: $10 (pay at door)  | Naples Zoo Members: Free | RSVP TODAY

  • Conservation Lecture Series: Hope for Wild Tigers

    Feb 15th, 2018
    6:00pm - 8:00pm

    Hope for Wild Tigers with Dr. Tara Harris

    At the rate tigers were being lost in the late 20th century, it didn't seem likely wild tigers would live to see the new millennium. But through the efforts of many, tigers still walk Asian forests. Yet much work remains to continue this good news. 

    As one of the many voices for tigers, Dr. Tara Harris serves two roles: As coordinator of the Association of Zoos & Aquariums’ Tiger Species Survival Plan®, she manages a breeding program for about 350 purebred tigers living in zoos across North America; and as head of the Tiger Conservation Campaign, she galvanizes zoo support for efforts to save wild tigers in Asia. Come hear her talk about what's making a difference for tigers and how you can be part of making more good news for these majestic creatures.

    Gather by the Malayan tigers for an informal mixer from 6 to 6:45 p.m. in the gardens followed by her presentation and Q&A in the Safari Canyon open-air theater until 8 p.m. Please dress comfortably for this evening outdoors.

    Cost: General Public: $10 (pay at door)  | Naples Zoo Members: Free | RSVP TODAY.
