Busch Gardens Tampa Bay animal ambassador Corey Oxman stopped by to talk about animal conservation ahead of Earth Day and to introduce us to four special animals. We met a lemur, a toucan, a Linne’s two-toed sloth, and a serval.
The animal ambassadors also shared some easy to follow tips that any one can do to aid conservation efforts. They include:
- Preserve and plant native plant species, so animals have the habitat, food, and shelter they need to raise their young.
- Use reusable materials. 60% of waste found on coastal areas are items like plastic bags, utensils, plates, etc.
- Continue learning about animals and their habitats.
