Over the weekend, we spent the day at the Maryland Zoo, an Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) accredited zoo. That means it meets the highest standards in animal care and provide a fun, safe, and educational family experience. And thanks to Stonyfield you can get free kids’ admission into one of these amazing zoos.
When you visit an AZA zoo you not only get a great day with your family but you are helping to support animal conservation and welfare.
It was an overcast day, but perfect for a walk at the zoo. We have never visited this one before, and what a gem. There are daily activities with the keepers, hands on experiences, and even a huge slide built into a giant tree.
We saw several different animals, learning more about them from the keepers on hand. Did you know Porcupines do not have quills on their bellies. If they did they would not be able to walk backwards.
The kids also got to feed a giraffe! He was such a sweet boy too!
Stonyfield YoKids is sponsoring the AZA SAFE (Saving Animals from Extinction) program on a mission to help save endangered species.
As part of a year-long effort, Stonyfield will not only be contributing funds to field work but aiming 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. Stonyfield YoKids’ sponsorship of AZA SAFE will support conservation efforts for 10 endangered species.
