Here at Zooppa, the only thing we love more than animals is protecting them. From fierce tigers and majestic elephants, to red pandas and quirky lemurs, there’s nothing better than seeing animals in the wild. Now more than ever, wildlife habitat is disappearing, leaving lions, tigers, and koala bears (oh my!) at risk of endangerment or extinction.
San Diego Zoo is spearheading the global conservation effort, rehabilitating animals and keeping them safe until they can return to their natural homes; their Wildlife Conservancy program has already saved populations of native animals like the ʻalalā crow in Hawaii. With a focus on at-risk species like African elephants, the conservancy sets up specialized shelters to prepare animals for release back into the wild. It might not sound like a lot, but with the elephants disappearing at an alarming rate (96 per day to be exact), there’s never been more to take action.
Our San Diego Wildlife Conservancy project challenges you to make a 30-second video inspiring animal lovers to become members of the program. No need to ask your local rhino for his filming availability—we’re looking for inspiring, out-of-the-box calls to action.
First prize for this project is $7,000 and winning spots will be aired nationwide, so don’t miss out on the opportunity to show off your work and help a great cause.
