Pickleball for Polar Bears
Kansas City Zoo has partnered with Polar Bears International to take a more active role in Polar Bear conservation. This robust program will serve the polar bear population and the visitors of our Zoo equally. Polar Bears International (PBI) is the only organization dedicated solely to conserving wild polar bears. The Kansas City Zoo is proud to partner with PBI in its efforts to conserve polar bears and the sea ice on which they depend. Funds raised from the Pickleball for Polar Bears tournament go directly toward our efforts with PBI.
