Let’s Do Our Part

Every day is Earth Day for the BPZOO and our supporters!

As we all do our part to protect and preserve habitats and ecosystems by our actions, collectively we are making an impact. This year as we continue to celebrate virtually, we are asking you to share pictures of how you help the environment in your daily lives.

Send pictures to contest@bpzoo.org during the month of April 🌎 and be entered to win prizes!

By submitting a picture, you are allowing the Buttonwood Park Zoological Society
to share your picture on social media.

If you wish to keep your picture private, please
clearly state so in your email. 

The first 100 submissions will receive an AZA Party for the Planet kit. Head to the Zoo for a visit and pickup your kit at the front desk!

Each kit is packed in a reusable produce mesh produce bag. Contents include:
•  Information card explaining contents of the bag
•  Garden trowel for digging in the dirt
•  Nature journal to record observations in nature
•  Window Cling as a reminder to cover windows to prevent bird strikes
•  Post Card for families to thank a person or business that is helping to save wild places for wildlife
•  Lights out for Wildlife light switch sticker

Plus, for every picture you send we will enter you into a raffle for a BPZOO reusable kit – everything you need to be plastic free in 2021! This pack includes a reusable straw, utensil travel kit, water bottle and a BPZOO t-shirt.
