ON DISPLAY THROUGHOUT THE ZOO  May 24-September 30

ANNIE THE ANEMONE

In oceans around the world you can find colorful sea anemones in tide pools near the beach or living as deep as 33,000 feet below the ocean surface.  Many species resemble beautiful flowers sprouting from the rocks and reefs.

Anemones are at risk due to the increase of plastics and micropastice in the ocean.  Plastic bottles are one of the most common marine debris items in the world.  Plastic bottle on land lead to plastic bottles in oceans.

Can you find these marine debris items in this sculpture?

  • plastic bottles
  • lighters
  • netting
  • shotgun shell wads
  • plastic bottle caps

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!

 


USE A REUSABLE

The United States uses more plastic water bottles than any other country in the world! This is despite the fact that U.S. tap water is almost universally safe to drink.

Use a reusable water bottle and coffee mug to save resources and help the environment. When we stop purchasing water in plastic bottles, they’ll stop making them.
