New York is Wild
As a child growing up in New York City, one of my most vivid memories is visiting the Bronx Zoo. As an adult, I have been to so many other zoos around the country, but nothing compares to the memories that I would love to recreate for my children from the Bronx Zoo. That is why when I was asked to be a Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) Ambassador, I gushed with a yes of course!
As the weather grows warmer, your family is probably getting ready to get out there and explore.
Get ready for an adventure!
Because New York is Wild this summer!
Did you know that New York City has some amazing sights and activities for people of all ages. One of which is the educational and fun-filled Bronx Zoo, which is turning NYC into a city-wide social photo safari, inviting you and your family to learn about 120 Ways #NYisWild. Each time you share your Bronx Zoo photos using the hashtag #NYisWild, you have a chance to win a trip to Belize — where the Wildlife Conservation Society does some wonderful conservation work year round.
Where does “120” fit in? The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) is celebrating their 120th Anniversary, so to celebrate, your family can participate by capturing a photo of 120 “wild” attractions around New York City. 100 of the 120 ways to capture #NYisWild takes place in WCS Parks such as the Bronx Zoo, the New York Aquarium, Central Park Zoo, Prospect Park Zoo and Queens Zoo.
So how can you enter to win these prizes,
including a special Grand Prize?
- From April to August participants can capture each attraction using Instagram or Twitter with #NYisWild and also hashtag the number of the clue. (IE: #NYisWild #84)
- Keep track of your progress on NYisWild.com by logging in via Instagram or Twitter.
- Entry to win prizes increases for hitting certain milestones (ie: Escape for 2 to Belize for completing 10/120 or Whale Watching Tour for 4 with WCS Scientists for completing 50/120).
- Download the full list of all 120 attractions here and have fun exploring!
