Exotic animals from the San Diego Zoo will be on public display Friday at a AAA branch in Chandler to help highlight the environmental concerns from global warming.

Visiting animals including a rock hyrax — little brother to the elephant, resembling a guinea pig — a double-yellow-headed parrot and a koala. The free public event is slated for noon to 2 p.m. at the AAA Arizona Chandler Branch Office, 4040 W. Ray Road, at Ray Road and McClintock Drive.

The event is intended to promote the reopening of the zoo’s popular “Polar Bear Plunge” exhibit, which shows how polar bears live in the Arctic and the threats they face due to climate change, according to AAA’s press release.
