Tasmanian Devils Unveiled: Debunking the Myths of the Zoo's Newest Residents
Speaker: Lynn Tupa, Zoo Manager
Scavenger, pack hunter, den thief, and all with a devilish howl...
Not just a Looney Tunes character, this Australian marsupial helps balance a delicate ecosystem, while facing imminent threats to its survival.
Join us as we explore the history of the fascinating animal, watch footage of natural behaviors in the wild, and learn how the ABQ BioPark is helping ensure Tasmanian devil populations survive for generations to come.
Can't make it Thursday? Join us for the same talk on Saturday, Jan. 11.
