Youth empowerment is the core of our future, at the Curaçao Zoo we give youth groups the chance to explore ,learn and we help them develop skills that strengthen ties to their family and general community. The Asosiashon di Guia PNA had a wonderful day today with many kids from their youth groups. The kids had a wonderful day learning how to plant,prepare compost and build flamingo nests at the pond. We are pleased with the help they gave us today, and in return they learned alot. #LearnWhileYouPlay#Explore#ShareTheWonder#LetsDoThingsTogether#CuraçaoZoo#MoreThanJustAZoo
We are Happy with the help that we receive from Artevelde Hogeschool(Belgium) supporting us for a few years now with the most energetic and passionate interns. Pieter and Freija are just wonderful! We recently started with the "school veggie gardens" School moestuin project as a pilot for Kids4Nature (our junior volunteer club)our core project "one square meter per kid" is ongoing and the school veggie garden will boost it even more, starting with a school near the Zoo ,the Johan van Walbeeck school. Teachers and students are happy with this pilot and we will continue to expand to other nearby schools. With the support form @emcuracao @freijadhont @pieterf_ @curaciao_ and our volunteers we will make this educational experience one that will live for a long time. Persistence and Endurance show you that you will be rewarded! #Kids4NatureClub#Interns#EMCuraçao#SupportOurCuraçaoZoo#ShareTheWonder#SchoolMoestuin#Educate#SustainabilityInTheMaking#GrowYourOwnFood
The fragrance of a gardenia is unforgettable! Not only does the flower represent trust, hope and love but it also attracts the fascinating hummingbird and Sphinx moths to your garden. Like the moonflower with its sweet fragrance these Moths are often seen feeding early evenings. Add beauty, fragrance and entertainment to your garden with the Gardenia and moonflower combination!! #fragrantgarden#gardenia#moonvine#joyinthejourney#choosejoy @styleblueprintmemphis @athomemagazine @lgrmag @cottagesgardens @cottagehomeandgarden #shopgermantown#hummingbirdmoth#sphinxmoth#sharethewonder

Today April 22 is Earth Day 2018, a day meant to emphasise on the need to protect the planet and preserve its environment. First celebrated in the United States in 1970, the idea of commemorating such a day was propounded by Gaylord Nelson, a US senator from Wisconsin. Nelson, who had been a witness to the devastation caused by an enormous oil spill in Santa Barbara, California in 1969, felt the urgency of the matter.
According to Earth Day Network, this year’s Earth Day is dedicated to spreading awareness about the pollution caused by plastic and the need to eventually end its use. The Earth Day went global by the 1990s and is now celebrated by at least 192 countries.This year is dedicated to spreading awareness about the pollution caused by plastic and the need to eventually end its use.#NoMorePlastic#UseGlass#Recycle#PlantASeed#GiveBackToNature#CuraçaoZoo#MoreThanJustAZoo#ShareTheWonder
We are extremely honored with the visit from CVO (Chief Veterinary Officer) from the Netherlands DVM,PhD. Dr. Christianne Bruschke and our very own CVO at the Curaçao Ministery of Health,Environment and Nature DVM. Dr. Arnold Dwarkasing. It is very important to have excellent communication between the governmental agencies and our zoo, with their help and knowledge we will succeed. Both where impressed with our work and we will see them very soon. #ShareTheWonder#MoreThanJustAZoo#CuraçaoZoo
