Asia Conservation Series

Mar 6, 2014
Blank Park Zoo

Asia encompasses millions of miles of diverse and unique landscapes. From rainforests to deserts, it is home to some of the world’s most iconic species, but these species are under threat in this rapidly changing world.

Join us for the 2014 Conservation Speaker Series to hear about what is being done to protect three of these majestic animals: the Red Panda, the Tiger and the Snow Leopard.

The evening event will include cocktails and appetizers, time to roam our rainforest exhibit and chat with the guest speaker. For more information or to purchase your tickets, visit or call 515-285-4722.

In 2013, she created the Red Panda Network Art Contest, inviting kids around the world to pick up their paintbrushes and answer the question: “Why should we save red pandas?” She will share with us the mission of the Red Panda Network, working to save this rare and beautiful animal through education and empowering local communities.
