Audubon Aquarium of the Americas Hosts Party for the PlanetTM 
Connecting Visitors to Wildlife Conservation
Saturday, April 26, 2014

 

(New Orleans, La.) - Throughout the month of April, AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums across North America will host events to raise awareness about conservation, sustainable living and making our Earth a better place to live. On Saturday, April 26, 2014 from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m., Audubon Aquarium will host Party for the PlanetTM, with events including live animal presentations, keeper talks, environmental activities and much more! 

"Zoos and aquariums across the country are influential leaders for conservation within their own communities," said Audubon Nature Institute President and CEO Ron Forman. "Partnering with AZA on events such as this is an effective way to make awareness of all our conservation efforts stretch even further."

More than 130 of the top zoos and aquariums across North America are throwing the 8th Annual Party for the PlanetTM - the largest combined Earth Day celebration in North America.

"Each year, AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums help connect more than 181 million visitors to nature, and these visitors have a strong interest in taking action to help protect the future of the Earth," said AZA President & CEO Jim Maddy. "By participating in Party For the PlanetTM at their local AZA-accredited zoo or aquarium, families will not only learn what they can do to help preserve our planet, but they will also learn about what zoos and aquariums are doing to support conservation efforts worldwide."

What better way to celebrate than with the planet's amazing and diverse wildlife? Local AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums are the perfect place to connect with nature and conservation in your community.
