Endangered Species Day at Zoo Atlanta is May 17!

 

This Saturday, May 17, is Endangered Species Day at Zoo Atlanta. Endangered Species Day is a great way to learn about endangered species here at the Zoo and also in the wild. We have SO many exciting activities plan that will be fun for the whole family! 

 

10:30 a.m. – Daniel Tiger from PBS’ Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood will be here for a meet and greet in the Birthday Pavillion.
11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. – We will be showing Born to be Wild, a heartfelt wildlife film about rescued orangutans and elephants in the World Studio

We will also be featuring information about the Palm oil crisis, Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund, 96 elephants, and some other great conservation projects supported by Zoo staff!

There will be arts & crafts and games at different exhibits around the Zoo. 
 
  • Rhino Exhibit – Dried Beans Animal Crafts – Use dried beans to fill in an animal outline and make artwork you can take home!
  • Gorilla Exhibit – Feast & Forage Activity – Forage  like gorillas through shredded paper to find plastic food hidden at the bottom.
  • Orangutan Exhibit – Musical Trees Game – Play  Musical Trees and whenever the music stops a good tree is replaced by a palm tree forcing you to find somewhere new to live! This keeps going until all the “good” trees are gone. Not only fun, but teaches you about Palm oil and the loss of habitats for wild orangutans.
  • Reptile Exhibit – Build a Toad Abode – Build a house for a toad and take it home to put outside.
  •  Tiger Exhibit – How Many Tigers Guessing Game – 350-400 are in tigers in a jar and you have to guess the exact number.  There are actually less Sumatran tigers in the wild than you will see in the jar!
  • Giant Panda Exhibit –Corridor Activity – Make your way through a maze avoiding obstacles like farmhouses, roads etc to learn how bamboo corridors enable pandas to travel safely from one area of their protected habitats to the next.
  • Elephant Exhibit – Zoo Atlanta Species Saver Cape – Sign a pledge to do your part to protect endangered species then decorate and make your own superhero cape to wear.
  • Flamingo Plaza - Endangered Species Scavenger Hunt – Go on a scavenger hunt for the answers to questions about 10 different endangered animals around the Zoo. The first guests to complete the scavenger hunt will get special prizes!

Look out for Zhu Zhu Panda and his friend Fernando the Fountain Frog who will be walking around the park and hanging out with Zoo guests!

Don't Go Noseblind! Breathe Happy With Febreze {Review + Giveaway}

*This review and giveaway was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Febreze. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.*



When you have pets at home like us, it is very common to become noseblind, to the lingering odor they leave behind. We have two dogs, two cats, and we often foster rescues until they are ready to be adopted. The problem of becoming noseblind, is that you always have the doubt in the back of your mind that your house smells funny. 


I don't know about you but I panic when I know someone is coming over to visit. I clean the house from top to bottom, but I'm never fully satisfied because I always worry about odor infestation, in other words, what your guests overwhelmingly smell as soon as they walk in the door. Let's be real, we all know that person that can track scents like bloodhound. They can follow the scent trail and no matter how well you clean they can always find it.

My Stress-Free Thanksgiving Dinner - Why Honeybaked Ham is My New Best Friend

Don't sweat the small stuff! Have a Happy Thanksgiving with Honeybaked Ham!
No matter how much I plan a sensible Thanksgiving dinner, I always over-plan, over-work, and over-spend. This year I'll try a different approach. Cook as little as possible and leave the rest to Honeybaked ham. I'm willing to cook a 30 minute side dish (just one) and bake a simple dessert (apple crème brûlée bread pudding) but besides those two things (that can easily be made the day ahead) my kitchen will not be open during the holidays.
This year I choose to be happy and stress free for Thanksgiving. I refuse to slave all day in the kitchen. As much as I enjoy cooking there are days I wish I have a personal chef at home that could cook for me. Since I don't see this remotely happening, the best thing I could do is order the Honeybaked Ham Whole Turkey Feast. Perfect for the Holidays and special celebrations, this gourmet feast includes a whole roasted turkey, old-fashioned cornbread dressing, …
