I am a Stonyfield Ambassador, and as such I received compensation and product coupons in exchange for sharing information. All opinions are 100% my own.
This summer Stonyfield YoKids is partnering with AZA SAFE (American Zoological Association Saving Animals from Extinction) to help save the world’s most vulnerable animal species. Through this partnership, Stonyfield will be contributing funds to help get kids to visit zoos and aquariums that will help educate them on why we need to help save many of the world’s animals from extinction.
This year’s conservation efforts will be focused on 10 different species including the African penguin (which you can see locally at Mystic Aquarium and the New England Aquarium). We recently visited with some African penguins at the National Aviary in Pittsburgh (another AZA accredited facility)!
Stonyfield will be visiting the Mystic Aquarium this Tuesday, April 25– otherwise known as World Penguin Day. They will be on Facebook Live at 12 pm EST to help give you and your children an up close and personal view of the African penguins. You will also learn why it’s so important for us to save them.
Along with helping to support the vulnerable African penguin population, Stonyfield will be featuring them on the YoKids box over the next year! There will be a special offer on each of these boxes:
Now through the end of September families who buy two specially-marked YoKids yogurt multipacks will receive a FREE kid’s admission to their local AZA-accredited zoo or aquarium (find yours HERE) when they also buy an adult ticket.
Can a cow save a penguin or a sea turtle or a cheetah?
Check out these ADORABLE and humorous videos of kids answering the question “Can a cow save a penguin or a sea turtle or a cheetah?” You can view the videos HERE and learn how to submit your own. The videos demonstrate the optimism of children, and the hope is that by educating them on the plight of endangered species, they will help us in important conservation efforts! As if you needed another reason to love (and buy!) Stonyfield YoKids, you have another one!:-)
Look for a recap of our visit to the New England Aquarium next week!
