‘Wildlife Live’ show takes off, presented by PGE



Summer’s in the air at the Oregon Zoo, as Wildlife Live presented by Portland General Electric returns for the season. The popular animal show features lighthearted humor, a conservation theme and gracefully soaring raptors gliding right over visitors’ heads.

At 11:15 a.m. and 1 p.m. daily, guests can watch Kamaria the milky eagle owl, Oshi the toucan, Zuberi the southern ground hornbill and Deschutes the golden eagle — all while learning about conservation issues and actions we can take to help wildlife. They can also get to know some of the zoo’s other charismatic ambassadors, like Bebeto the prehensile-tailed porcupine.

“We want to raise awareness about the importance of our everyday choices and their effects on wildlife,” said Kate Gilmore, who oversees the zoo’s ambassador animal programs. “By learning about these animals and their stories, we hope to bring people together for wildlife to create a better future for all.”

Wildlife Live presented by Portland General Electric runs daily through Sept. 4. All shows are weather dependent.

Portland General Electric, the No. 1 provider of renewable power in the country, has been a supporter of the zoo’s Wildlife Live shows since 1986. PGE is committed to helping its customers and communities build a clean energy future, as well as protecting Oregon’s wildlife and their habitats. A special Avian Protection Plan helps make PGE facilities safer for birds.

As part of Metro, the Oregon Zoo helps make greater Portland a great place to call home. Committed to conservation, the zoo is working to save endangered California condors, northwestern pond turtles, Oregon silverspot butterflies and northern leopard frogs.

Support from the Oregon Zoo Foundation enhances and expands the zoo’s efforts in conservation, education and animal welfare. Members, donors and corporate and foundation partners help the zoo make a difference across the region and around the world.
