Save the Vaquita Weekend Beach Party
July 16 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pmFree with Zoo admission
The vaquita is the world’s most endangered marine mammal – there are fewer than 30 left. PERIOD. We’re raising awareness and money to help support an emergency rescue plan, so join us July 14-16 for our Save the Vaquita Weekend Beach Party.
The festivities kick off Friday, July 14, on Cat Green. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. all weekend (with extended hours until 8 p.m. during Saturday’s Safari Nights concert), we’ll have children’s beach games, a bounce house, and face painting – the party and games are free with Zoo admission (bounce house and face painting are $5 each). And donations to Vaquita SAFE are appreciated.
You can also purchase specially designed “Save the Vaquita” t-shirts ($15), stickers ($2), or a limited-edition wristband ($5). Also at the Lacerte Family Children’s Zoo Discovery House, you can write a note of encouragement to the vaquita conservation heroes on the front lines. We’ll collect and mail all the notes!
