The Denver Zoo invites visitors to celebrate International Polar Bear Day on Thursday, February 27, the nonprofit announced Wednesday.

The event features the zoo’s polar bears Lee and Cranbeary. Guests will see them enjoy a special ice sculpture treat.

Zookeepers and volunteers also will offer information about the challenges polar bears face in the wild and how people can help – by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

The bears will receive their ice sculpture treat at 10 a.m. The polar bear zoo keeper will speak at 11 a.m.

The event is held in partnership with Polar Bears International, which named the zoo an Arctic Ambassador in 2011.

Polar Bears International has issued a challenge for February 27. In its Thermostat Challenge, the organization asks everyone to adjust their thermostat down a few degrees to lower carbon emissions and help save polar bears. It invites participants to share their pictures on its Save Our Sea Ice Community Page.

Denver Zoo visitors can win a guided behind-the scenes tour of the polar bear exhibit by “liking" the Denver Zoo’s Facebook page and sharing their efforts to reduce their carbon footprint.
