What does a cow have to do with a penguin? No, it is not the newest kids joke. Stonyfield YoKids is sponsoring a program AZA SAFE. SAFE stands for Saving Animals from Extinction. So as part of this year long project Stonyfield is specifically committing funds to help reverse the decline of the African Penguin. So, a cow can save a penguin!! The amount of African Penguins has decreased by 97% in the last 100 years.
What a great day to share this news, because today is World Penguin Day!! In honor of today, Stonyfield and AZA will be hosting a Facebook Live for kids and their parents!! The broadcast will be held at the Mystic Aquarium in Mystic CT at noon today, April 25th. You and your child/children will have the opportunity to see these penguins and to learn about the conservation being done to help save them. Be sure to join the Facebook Live here: https://www.facebook.com/stonyfield/ at noon today.
Now, there are some other ways your child can learn more about the African Penguin and other AZA SAFE animals. Stonyfield will be featuring them on their YoKids packaging. Your child can collect them all, while eating and snacking, healthy!
Along with all this, Stonyfield YoKids is offering a free kids pass to the 131 participating zoos with the purchase of 2 specially marked YoKids multipacks and of course an adult admission. You can see the participating zoos HERE. This is available now through the end of September.
Neighbors, there is a special AZA page where your children can watch special videos that answer the humorous questions, like "Can a cow save a penguin?" Just click here and allow your child/children enjoy these videos, while educating them about endangered species.
Last of all, but not the very least, Stonyfield has announced that they are reducing the sugar content in all their yogurts, including YoKids. Always made with USDA organic, non-GMO ingredients, they now have 40% less sugar then the leading low-fat kids yogurt. You can purchase Stonyfield YoKids in cups, squeezers and smoothies.
Thanks for stopping by today, and remember to visit the Facebook Live today at noon.
