Exploring the North Pole and Animals of the Arctic with renowned polar expert, Moki Kokoris, in the comfort of the Danbury Library with this age-appropriate, interactive and hands-on presentation will introduce the Arctic region to young students and will focus mainly on distinctive Arctic wildlife, their behavior and habitats. Animals discussed will include the polar bear, musk ox, Beluga whale, narwhal, Arctic wolf, Arctic fox, reindeer, seals, Arctic Tern and other birds as well as truly unique insects.
