There is no place like New York City and one of my favorite places is the Bronx Zoo. I’ve been coming here since I was a little girl and I am so thrilled to share it with my own family.
I am pleased to announce that I am a Wildlife Conservation Society Zoo Crew Ambassador again for 2015 and I have great info to share about their 120 Ways NY is Wild #NYisWild Campaign.
To celebrate the 120th anniversary of the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), a city-wide campaign called #NYisWild is turning the concrete jungle into a summer-long photo safari. 100 of the 120 Ways takes places in the WCS parks: Bronx Zoo, the New York Aquarium, Central Park Zoo, Prospect Park Zoo & Queens Zoo.
How You Can Participate:
- Choose from 120 “wild” attractions around the city and capturing a photo of each for a chance to win irresistible prizes
- There are several prize levels available, including a special Grand Prize. Entry to win these prizes increases for hitting certain milestones (ex: Escape for 2 to Belize for completing 10/120 or Whale Watching Tour for 4 With WCS Scientists for completing 50/120).
- From April to August participants can capture each attraction using Instagram or Twitter with #NYisWild and also hashtagging the number of the clue (ex: #NYisWild, #84)
- Keep track of all progress on NYisWild.com by logging in via an Instagram or Twitter account.
We had such a fun time with #NYisWild. I took my family and my sister-in-law, brother-in-law and two nieces last week and we had a blast running around, trying to complete our tasks. It was a great way to make a trip to the Zoo even more of adventure.
Here are my #NYisWild Shares from instagram.
My family had a ball too.
I plan to try to complete as many activities as I can — we frequent the Queens Zoo often and love getting to the Brooklyn Aquarium. Do you want to participate in NYisWild?
