Did you know that today is World Penguin Day?? Penguins are one of my favorite animals and we love seeing them at the Columbia Riverbanks Zoo- an AZA (Association of Zoos and Aquariums) accredited zoo in SC. We are going to visit Riverbanks (hopefully this weekend!) so I will be back with more info about them and their efforts with AZA.
Stonyfield made a huge announcement today that YoKids is sponsoring AZA’s SAFE program (Saving Animals From Extinction) that will help support conservation efforts for 10 endangered species, including the African Penguin! Click here to find out the other 10!
In honor of World Penguin Day, you can go to the Stonyfield Facebook page and learn more about the African Penguin from an awesome live video from the Mystic Aquarium in Connecticut. Plus you can see more about their fun announcement!
Stonyfield is the leading organic yogurt maker and is dedicated to conservation and sustainability. Each year they keep over 185,000 pounds of toxic pesticides out of the environment, helping to safeguard species and their eco-systems. So it made sense for them to sponsor a mission that is helping to save endangered species!
As part of a year-long effort, Stonyfield YoKids will not only be contributing funds to field work but will aim to drive kids and their families to see animals and conservation projects first hand at zoos, aquariums, and on the ground where the research is happening. This is the really cool part!
When you purchase two specially marked Stonyfield Organic YoKids multipacks from now until September 2017, you can get a FREE kid’s ticket with purchase of an adult ticket to an accredited AZA zoo or aquarium!! There are over 131 accredited zoos and aquariums- you can click here for a list. Over the next year you will see the African Penguin and the most endangered AZA SAFE species will be on Stonyfield Organic YoKids packaging- so be on the lookout!
Grab your kids and head on over to the Stonyfield YoKids AZA page and see all of the great info about the 10 AZA SAFE endangered species along with a bunch of games, quizzes, coloring sheets, word searches, mazes and more. You can also learn how you can get involved by joining the #imagineHow video series!
