The Newbery Medal-winning book The One and Only Ivan has brought the story of Ivan to the forefront for a new generation of readers. We'll discuss the real Ivan, who called Zoo Atlanta home for 18 years. From the jungles of Africa to the shores of the Pacific Northwest to The Ford African Rain Forest at Zoo Atlanta, his life has become a symbol of the way animals shape our lives -- and the power we have to shape theirs.
We'll be joined by our educator instructor Carvel Bennett and primate keeper Jodi Carrigan, who was Ivan's close friend for 10 years.
