Our Polar Bear Forest Grows!
The Milwaukee Zoo, part of our Arctic Ambassador Center network, recently held a tree-planting day as part of the zoo's Party for the Planet celebration. They set a goal of planting 200 trees to reduce CO2 and help polar bears survive in the wild! Each visitor received a seedling to plant in a designated area to create the zoo's own Polar Bear Forest®.
Planting trees helps to clear the atmosphere of carbon dioxide and slows down global warming.
Members of the Milwaukee Zoo AAZK Chapter planted the tree they won for being the top-fundraiser in the AAZK Trees for You & Me competition. They're shown below with Robert Buchanan of PBI.
