Summer’s in the air at the Oregon Zoo this week, 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 from June 13 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.
