The Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society invites the public to celebrate Earth Day at the Zoo on Tuesday, April 22, 2014, with the “Passport to Conservation.” Guests can explore the Zoo, searching for the Passport to Conservation logo posted at habitats of endangered animals that participate in a Species Survival Plan (SSP) as recommended by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). The Passport to Conservation logo will lead guests to facts about sustainability and eco-friendly tips that can help wildlife. When leaving the Zoo, participants can fill out an entry form with the number of Passports found around the Zoo. One lucky guest who finds the most Passports without going over will win four VIP admission passes to the Zoo, along with a “going green” gift basket valued at $100.

Events Manager Ron Brooks said there is a greater message behind the fun activity. “Here at the Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society, children can meet endangered animals up close, and learn actions they can take to preserve wildlife habitat,” Brooks said. “That’s critical for animals to prevent extinction. We strive to make every day Earth Day, but we appreciate the extra focus this one particular day gives to wildlife every year.”

Those who are not able to visit the Zoo on Earth Day can visit this link to see sustainability tips in the Passport to Conservation.
