Bullets, treadmills and the power of a good banana...these are a few of the surprising tools the Oregon Zoo uses to save endangered species. Are we gaining ground in the battle to save endangered species? Are today’s zoos making a difference? Learn where the Oregon Zoo is seeing success and where it will focus efforts in the coming years. Dr. Don Moore, Oregon Zoo director, will share stories of three of the zoo’s unusual and different approaches to saving endangered species using tools uniquely available to zoos.
Dr. Don Moore is a zoo-based endangered species conservation specialist and animal behaviorist, who has been leading and training the next generation of animal care professionals and conservation biologists for over 30 years.
