“Flamingo Flocking” Campaign Begins On June 1

May 30, 2013

Layout 4 The Bermuda Zoological Society [BZS] will be tickling the island pink throughout June as it launches its annual “Flamingo Flocking” fundraiser.

The popular campaign—which raises funds for conservation education—gets underway on June 1.

Throughout the month, the support charity for Bermuda Aquarium, Museum & Zoo [BAMZ] will be offering flocks of plastic flamingos to private and corporate participants who want to surprise relatives, friends and colleagues by paying to have the birds planted on lawns or in office lobbies.

More than 80 “flockings” took place throughout Bermuda in June, 2012, raising almost $10,000. The BZS hopes to surpass that figure this year.

Last year funds raised during the campaign went to support BZS’s free conservation-education programmes, which include classes at BAMZ, marine expeditions to coral reefs and seagrass beds, fieldtrips to national parks around Bermuda, and holiday and afterschool camps and nature encounters.

More than 6,000 students of all ages benefit annually from the year-round programmes, which are run under the BZS mission “to educate tomorrow’s environmentalists.”

Contact the “Flamingo Flocking” hotline at 293-2727, ext. 2130 for further information.
