Masked BFFs, hairy orange apes, & pooping rhinos – oh my!

What do black-footed ferrets, orangutans, and rhinos have in common? At first blush, nothing. But join us for a closer look. Author Patricia Newman and photographer Annie Crawley will share a virtual behind-the-scenes adventure about their new book, Zoo Scientists to the Rescue. Three zoos. Three scientists. Three endangered species. A blizzard. LOTS of poop. Adorable babies. And fun for all ages!

This special presentation will take place in the OtterBox Digital Dome Theater at 1:00pm, followed by a book signing in The Museum Store.

Learn more about our featured guests & Zoo Scientists to the Rescue here.

Free and open to the public. Advanced registration for the presentation recommended.
