It’s a zoo at Conversations Live with northwest naturalist, John Bierlein. Today we’ll learn the story behind a Seattle icon, and share how the people and animals of Woodland Park Zoo shaped its history. We’ll also discover how zoos can help people and animals connect, and hear about some of the 35 conservation projects that Woodland is currently managing.
John Bierlein began his career at Discovery Park more than 40 years ago, and was involved with the design of Woodland Park Zoo for 20 years. Bierlein wrote Woodland: The Story of the Animals and People of Woodland Park Zoo as a continuation of the work done by longtime zoo colleague, Dana Payne.
