Did you know today is World Penguin Day? To help celebrate one of my favorite companies in the world Stonyfield Farms is partnering with AZA accredited zoo’s and aquariums and sponsoring AZA SAFE (Saving Animals from Extinction) program. The mission is to help save endangered species by contributing funds to field work but aiming to drive kids and their families to see animals and conservation projects first hand at zoos and aquariums. Stonyfield YoKids sponsorship of AZA SAFE will support conservation efforts for 10 endangered species including the beloved African Penguin.
How can you easily help keep the most endangered animals on the planet safe? Well, let me tell you!
- Head to your local AZA Accredited Zoo or Aquarium to see these endangered animals face to face and see what programs they provide to encourage local involvement.
- Can’t get to a AZA zoo or aquarium right away? No problem you can encourage awareness through these fun games and activities.
- Kids see the world differently that can inspire us all to make a real difference. Share yours and your kid’s stories to help inspire others to help save endangered animals using the hashtag #imaginehow
- When you purchase two specially marked Stonyfield Organic YoKids mulitpacks, you can get a FREE ticket with a purchase of 1 adult ticket.
So besides being the organic yogurt maker, Stonyfield has also focused on conservation and sustainability for years. Did you know that each year Stonyfield keeps over 185,000 pounds of toxic pesticides out of the environment which help safeguard species and their eco-systems. We can now add saving endangered animals to their resume.
So the next time you are at the grocery thinking about which yogurt to buy your kids pick up Stonyfield and feel good that you are not only feeding your children something healthy but supporting a great cause in the process.
