Goodbye Kavek, Polar Bear at the Tulsa Zoo

by Michael Mason


Today we’re republishing an episode of This Land Radio’s precursor, Goodbye Tulsa.

In this segment, Karen Dunn, large mammal curator at the Tulsa Zoo, tells us about the polar bear Kavek, who passed away in 2009. Crowds remembered him for his inquisitiveness, but Dunn recognized him for something much more‚Äďan ambassador for his species.
