Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens map
Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens is joining with over 100 accredited zoos and aquariums across the nation to Party for the Planet™ in celebration of Earth Day. From 9 am to 1 pm on Saturday, April 7th, conservation groups from around Southwest Florida, as well as local businesses with a green focus, will be on-site to share ways on how to live more sustainably. Plus, our education team will have 5 stations for fun and learning:
Do you know how many teeth an anteater has? Test your knowledge of the animals that call Naples Zoo home and learn ways to help protect them in the wild!
The first and most important of the 3 R’s is REDUCE! Learn how to pack a waste-free lunch, or bring in an old t-shirt and we’ll show you how to turn it into a reusable shopping bag!
Go on a butterfly mini-safari and learn what to plant to attract pollinators to your own garden! Even get some wildflower seeds to take home (while supplies last).
Palm Oil Virtual Scavenger Hunt
What do peanut butter, shampoo, and dog food have in common? They all could contain unsustainable palm oil. Race through the Palm Oil Shopping Guide app to find products that help protect rainforest animals like the Clouded Leopard.
SAFE Animal Matching Game
Match up animals of the SAFE (Saving Animals From Extinction) program and learn how zoos and aquariums are helping to protect animals all over the world. Find out ways you can help too!
Best of all, Party for the Planet™ is taking place on the first Saturday of the month when Collier County residents are welcomed free to Naples Zoo!
