What YOU can do for Global Conservation
  • Never buy exotic hardwood – keep our rainforests healthy
  • Snip six-pack rings – these can harm our marine wildlife
  • Never buy exotic animal products including: ivory, tortoiseshell, coral, reptile skins, cat pelts or other products from endangered animals or plants
  • Recycle your used printer cartridges and old cell phones – if you bring these items to Blank Park Zoo we will recycle them for you!
  • Eat dolphin-safe tuna
  • Turn off the water while brushing your teeth – a household can save up to 20,000 gallons of water per year
  • Keep your tires fully inflated – this will increase the life of your tires while saving you gas
  • Use rechargeable batteries – batteries contain heavy metals which eventually end up in our water, air and soil
  • Carpool, walk or ride your bike – the less driving you do the less carbon is released into the air
  • Support your zoo! We play a huge roll in conservation by breeding endangered animals.
What YOU can do for Local Conservation
  • Plant a tree – provides shade and cleans the air
  • Create “backyard habitat” for native wildlife – add birdhouses, birdbaths, plants and trees
  • Volunteer to clean up local waterways and parks
  • Install rain barrels to collect rainwater for gardens and plants
  • Use less pesticides and fertilizers on your lawn – these leach toxins into our groundwater
  • Pick up a piece of litter everyday
  • Compost your yard waste and kitchen scraps
  • Recycle everything you can
  • Grow your own fruits and vegetables
  • Support your local zoo, they are working to educate the public on wildlife conservation and environmental issues
