It's a Jungle Out There:120 Ways #NYisWild & 6 Ticket #Giveaway to the Bronx Zoo

The Bronx Zoo

Back in the day my mom would spend the night before packing our lunches & laying out our clothes for a day long adventure at the Bronx Zoo. We'd wake up really early to jump on the Q44 bus for a 90 minute ride from Queens to the Bronx to make sure we were one of the first few families there and would enjoy the entire day exploring until the zoo closed (even if it rained and we had to ask an employee for one of those super sized garbage bags to use as ponchos, lol) and were the last few out. 

I have countless childhood memories there and now as a parents, the hubby and I take our two monsters for visits to the WCS parks all year round hoping to create priceless moments for them too as they enjoy educational and fun-filled experiences. This month alone we've visited on Easter and we were just there yesterday for our monthly nature club meeting (through the AZA )where the boys searched for bugs by the Bronx River!

This summer, the Bronx Zoo will turn NYC into a city-wide social photo safari by inviting consumers to learn about “120 Ways #NYisWild.”  The more people share their in-park photos using the #NYisWild hashtag, the more chances they have to win a trip to Belize, one of the locations where the Wildlife Conservation Society—owner and operator of the Bronx Zoo – does some exciting and relevant conservation work.

The “120” part of this acknowledges and celebrates 120 years of conservation since the founding of this organization, and 100 of the 120 ways take place in WCS parks: Bronx Zoo, the New York Aquarium, Central Park Zoo, Prospect Park Zoo & Queens Zoo.
