Science in the City presents Coffee, Kangaroos, and Community: A One Health Approach
June 11, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
At part of Pacific Science Center’s Science in the City Global Health and Development lecture series, Woodland Park Zoo‘s Tree Kangaroo Conservation Program, the University of Washington, and local physicians will explain the “One Health” approach to conservation – that human, animal and environmental health are all interconnected – and how they are helping to partner indigenous communities in Papua New Guinea with Seattle-based businesses like Caffe Vita. Through this program, the zoo is helping to maintain habitats for species like the tree kangaroo and provide healthcare to communities that never had access to modern medicine before.
