SAFE is a national program that will harness the power of the 229 AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums and their 180 million annual visitors to save endangered species in the wild.
One of the 10 species SAFE will focus on this year is the African penguin. Each year, the Greensboro Science Center holds a 5K and Kids’ Fun Run called the Tuxedo Trot, which raises money for the Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds.
Check out the pictures (HERE) of the 2015 Tuxedo Trot hosted by the Greensboro Science Center. More than 400 participants took place in this event to help raise $10,000 …all for Wild Penguin Conservation. Thank you to those who ran, walked, or waddled across the finish line.
