2014 marks the 40th anniversary of the Endangered Species Act.
Endangered Species Day is an opportunity for zoo visitors to learn about the importance of protecting endangered species and everyday actions they can take to help them survive.
More than 50 endangered or threatened species live at the Oregon Zoo. On May 16, keepers and volunteers will be stationed at six exhibit locations to discuss some of these imperiled animals, including orangutans, California condors and African wild dogs.
