K12 Rhythm of Conservation And Sweepstakes
It's important for our kids to become involved in activities that help them explore our connection to the world around us. In an effort to highlight all the ways we can connect with our environment and learn how to make a difference in conservation, we are proud to announce a partnership with the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA).
The AZA is an organization dedicated to the advancement of zoos and aquariums in the areas conservation, education, science, and recreation and is dedicated to ensuring that AZA zoos and aquariums provide excellent care for animals and a better future for all living things.
Under their guidance, we have created the K12 Rhythm of Conservation program, dedicated to elevating the awareness of animal conservation efforts through positive, optimistic messages; and to inspire families to become personally involved in making a difference.
Each week during the program, we will be highlighting different conservation efforts going on around the world, including Ape Conservation Initiatives, Earth Day Events, Elephant & Tiger Conservation to name a few. Information on how to get involved, family activities, and resources will be available throughout the program and we want you celebrate your own conservation efforts publicly by sharing your stories and photos on our K12 Rhythm of Conservation facebook community page!
At the end of each week, we will be sharing a fun science experiment to help your family learn more about conservation.
To make learning about conservation even more fruitful, we are teaming up with The Association of Zoos & Aquariums to bring you The Rhythm of Conservation Sweepstakes with a chance to win some pretty cool prizes if I say so myself. The grand prize winner will win a trip for four to Walt Disney World® and another winner will win a prize package containing a NOOK TabletTM, LeapPad, Zoo or aquarium membership, and $100 of K12 merchandise!
When you visit an AZA zoo or aquarium, you become part of the rhythm of conservation working to save wildlife and wild places. Let wildlife strike a chord in your life and learn how to beat the drum of conservation and explore how nature is full of rhythms – from the cadenced chirping of crickets, the precise blinking of firefly luminescence, the tiger’s pattern of stripes, to the undulating pulse of jellyfish. You will be surprised by how many rhythms you will discover when you look, listen, and watch nature all around you.
