2018-02-20 - Cold Jet Sponsors International Polar Bear Day
Local event will take place on February 27 at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden
(Loveland, Ohio – February 20, 2018). Cold Jet® – the worldwide leader in dry ice technology– is sponsoring International Polar Day at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden.
This full day experience invites the Cincinnati community to fall in love with the polar bear, which has been Cold Jet’s mascot for more than 30 years. Visitors will learn about the polar bear’s daily life, habits and the threatened status of these beautiful animals in an engaging and meaningful way.
“We are excited to sponsor International Polar Bear Day at the Cincinnati Zoo,” said Christian Rogiers, Vice President, Global Marketing & Strategy, Cold Jet. “The polar bear holds special significance to our company and we are proud to be playing a part in saving the animal for future generations.”
On International Polar Bear Day, visitors will have the opportunity to witness and participate in several activity stations throughout the Zoo. Designed to entertain, educate and provide hands-on experiences, these interactions can be found at the Zoo’s winter animal habitats and are scheduled to allow guests to experience them all! The interactions include: Feel Polar Bear fur, ultrasound demonstrations, frozen fish in ice and creating papier-mache polar bears and other animals.
Proceeds generated from this event directly support the Zoo’s Polar Bear Conservation Project which is working to create a more stable future for the world’s threatened polar bears.
For those not able to attend, the Zoo will host a Facebook Live chat with one of the keepers and lead polar bear scientists. Viewers will be able to ask questions and learn more about the polar bear and conservation efforts.
