American Sea Star

 

ON DISPLAY THROUGHOUT THE ZOO  May 24-September 30

AMERICAN SEA STAR

This red, white and blue sea star was created to bring attention to plastics used in Independence Day celebrations.

Every Fourth of July thousands of visitors flock to lakes, rivers and ocean shores to watch firework displays and celebrate with fireworks of their own.This results in thousands of pounds of plastic entering marine environments and affecting the animals that live there.

Can you find these marine debris items in this sculpture?

  • shotgun shells
  • beer cans
  • soda cans
  • garbage can lid
  • golf balls
  • bottle caps
  • toy truck wheel

If you can’t you’d better plan a visit to the Zoo today to see these amazing sculptures in person!

You can purchase Zoo Admission tickets online!

 


CELEBRATE IN STYLE

The next time you celebrate with fireworks choose items that don’t contain plastic parts that will be launched out of your reach and into the environment.
