Programs with Pop: Fish and Wildlife Service's Suitcase for Survival (Ages 6-9)
Wednesday, June 13
Some of the world's best-loved species are being killed by wildlife criminals for illegal trade.
Wild tigers are being hunted to extinction for their skins, bones, teeth and claws. Last year, more than 30,000 African elephants were poached for their ivory tusks. South Africa has experienced a 7,000% increase in rhino poaching since 2007. Just because it's for sale does not mean it is legal.
Come learn with Inspector Brian Downie about how the US Fish and Wildlife Service is helping to save our world's wildlife. He will bring the suitcase which is full of illegal wildlife parts and products seized here in America by the US Fish and Wildlife Service.Learn how you can help save nature by asking basic questions and getting the facts. When in doubt, don't buy. You can help stop wildlife crime.
Tickets are available online beginning at 9am on the Friday prior to the performances.
