GO APE FOR LOVE YOUR ZOO LAUNCH
ORANGUTANS, otters and octopuses across the UK and Ireland are inviting you to show them just how much you care by celebrating the launch of Love Your Zoo week next Saturday (May 25).
The campaign, which was launched by the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums (BIAZA) in 2011, will run from Friday, May 25 to Friday, May 31. Its aim is to encourage people to visit their local BIAZA zoos, aquariums and wildlife centres not only for a fun day out, but to learn just how much they do for conservation, education and research.
than 50 zoos, aquariums and wildlife centres across the
There will be something for everyone from face painting and making toy animals to learning about the importance of zoos and conservation. Welsh Mountain Zoo will be showing children how to make Love Your Zoo badges, while Dartmoor Zoo creates the Love Your Zoo characters out of felt.
Kirsten Pullen, CEO of BIAZA, said: “We want people to understand why it is important to visit their local BIAZA zoo or aquarium. Zoos do a lot more than provide a fun day out. They are helping safeguard the future of vulnerable species and getting visitors closer to nature so hopefully they are inspired to make a difference.
“We have lots in store for families during the week so we hope people will support the campaign and find out the top ten reasons why they should love their zoo.”
