In its inaugural year, the Tails & Cocktails Speaker Series provides a one-of-a-kind experience. Guests will hear experts from the Zoo and the Northeast Ohio community discussing a variety of topics impacting health and welfare, wildlife conservation and science education.

What we eat – and how it’s processed during digestion – has an impact on health. Learn how Zoo scientists are working with sloth bear and orangutan diets and studying the bacterial fermentation process to improve animal welfare and health, and how we can apply these findings to human health.

Speakers: Andrew Loudon, Cleveland Metroparks Zoo Science Research Fellow; enjoy fermented food samplings from Spice Kitchen + Bar and Terrestrial Brewing.
