The Denver Zoo is offering guests that wear white today (Feb. 27) a buy one, get one admission. In celebration of International Polar Bear Day the zoo is offering up special prizes in honor of the white bears and to raise awareness of reducing our carbon footprint.
Polar Bears International invite people to take the "Thermostat Challenge" by turning down the temperature in their home by two degrees to preserve polar bear habitat. Guests can further show their support on the day by wearing white to the zoo and receiving buy one, get one free admission.
Reducing our carbon footprint can slow and even reverse climate change, which causes sea ice to melt. Polar bears require sea ice to reach their prey and without it, polar bears can't survive. Even small adjustments by humans can make a big difference.
Zoo visitors can win prizes for their involvement in the "White Out" event. Everyone that joins this event on the zoo's Facebook page, shares it on their own Facebook page and helps Denver Zoo spread the word about ways we can help save polar bears will be entered to win special prizes from Denver Zoo!
