Can a cow save a penguin? That may seem like a silly question, but one of our favorite healthy snacks, Stonyfield YoKids is partnering up with the AZA SAFE program. Through their work together, both organizations are on a mission to help save endangered species. In fact, as a proud sponsor of AZA SAFE, Stonyfield has committed funds that will be used to help reverse the decline of the African penguin specifically! There you have it, cows saving penguins!
We love Stonyfield Yokids products! As a mom, what is not to love about products that were made without the use of toxic pesticides or GMO’s. It’s good for my kids and of course it’s delicious! My kids are also big animal lovers. They love reading about animals, going to the zoo, and watching documentaries. I knew I had to help spread the word about this amazing partnership with the AZA SAFE program.
Did you know that in the last 100 years, African penguin breeding pairs, which numbered almost one million at the beginning of the 20th century, have dropped to approximately 25,000 – a 97% decrease? Reasons for this decline include oil spills, a loss of nest burrow sites, and a reduction in prey due to commercial fishing.
In support of the AZA, Stonyfield Organic’s YoKids line will feature an on-pack offer to get families out to visit AZA member zoos and aquariums, which is critically important to inspiring a love of animals – and a commitment to saving them – at an early age. Now through the end of August, families who buy two YoKids yogurt packs will receive a free kid’s admission to their local AZA-accredited zoo or aquarium. How awesome is that!? Head to your local store and pick up some Stonyfield YoKids and get ready to enjoy a visit to the zoo!
