Celebrating World Wildlife Day at the Tallahassee Museum

Wildlife Day (1)The Tallahassee Museum remains dedicated to conservation and the preservation of biodiversity, and our education and exhibits teams work diligently to implement conservation efforts and messaging into our public programs, community outreach events, and new exhibits.  These efforts include practicing environmental sustainability as we work to address storm water issues on our 52-acre site, as well as participating in national conservation programs such the red wolf Species Survival Plan (SSP) and the Monterey Bay Seafood Watch program.

The Tallahassee Museum participated in this year’s UN World Wildlife Day, to raise awareness of the multitude of benefits that conservation provides to both wildlife and people, and recognizes the plight of many threatened or endangered species.

The museum celebrated World Wildlife Day on Saturday, March 4, offering an array of activities throughout the Museum’s grounds. The theme of this year’s celebration is ‘Listen to the Young Voices’, with a focus on connecting young people to explore what wildlife conservation and protection mean to them while instilling a responsibility in them to take action for the future of both wild animals and plants.

Visitors participated in a special enrichment program with our guest animals, the Asian Small-Clawed Otters. Other activities included an owl pellet activity, Red Wolf paw print creations, create your own Florida Panther sticker, and a Florida Panther long jump. Also, visitors had the opportunity to get close-up with animal encounters at Chapin outdoor classroom and educators roamed the Museum grounds with one of our native species. Florida Fish and Wildlife’s Bear Management Division joined us with a booth near our very own Black Bear enclosure.

Thank you to all of our World Wildlife Day participants for making this year’s celebration a success.  Fun was had by all!
