Have dinner and drinks with friends while learning about wildlife at our February pub talk!

Presented by Pro Photo Supply, Oregon Zoo Pub Talks connect you with conservation experts. Each month conservation, animal care or wildlife science professionals share their knowledge and experience saving animals across the planet, from the forests of Borneo to the skies of the Pacific Northwest.

At the February event, animal behavior specialist Barbara Heidenreich, who has trained thousands of animals including rats and rhinos, will discuss her work. She works with universities, veterinary professionals, zoos, pet owners and conservationists around the world to help foster the bond between humans and animals.

Heidenreich will share stories about her recent adventures, including curbing the amorous ways of a famous rare parrot in New Zealand and working in partnership with the Oregon Zoo to improve animal welfare for orangutans in Borneo.

Doors open at 6 p.m. and the talk begins at 7 p.m., followed by a Q&A.

The event is located at the Oregon Zoo Cascade Grill. Food and beverages will be available for purchase.

Oregon Zoo Pub Talks are fun, educational events that help support the zoo’s mission of creating a better future for wildlife through its animal welfare, education and conservation programs.

    Dear PDX Portland,
    This animal training talk sounds fascinating. As someone who has taught her dog to fetch the paper and play dead (among other things), and taught their cats to jump through hoops I would love to learn more from a professional trainer. Thank you.

      I just discovered this website. It’s so cool. Love to win free stuff. The Zoo here is definitely nicer than the Denver Zoo.
      Good luck everyone.

    Learning about curbing the amorous ways of a famous rare New Zealand parrot and animal welfare to better human-animal bonds?How much more just-before-Valentine’s Day-romantic can you get?

    Dinner out is SO 2018 and SweetHeart candies are off the shelf, so I want to take my girl out on the town to learn more about orangutans, rats, rhinos, and the humans whose hearts go pitter-patter when they talk conservation and animal behavior.

    I mean, doesn’t that sound like a ‘wild’ date? Even the parrots agree!
