PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. - The Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society stopped by the NewsChannel 5 studio with Goose, a scarlet macaw.
The birds are large parrots with bright red, yellow and blue feathers. They are native to South America. They are important to the ecosystem because they are seed-dispersers.
Animal Trainer Sara Travis and Media Relations Manager Angela Ledford introduced Goose and explained that we can protect the scarlet macaw’s habitat by purchasing sustainably-grown coffee. Coffee stamped with the Rainforest Alliance Certified frog is sustainably-grown.
There are several fun events, activities and special deals happening at the Zoo in coming weeks.
Story Time at the Zoo is every Saturday morning at 10:30. You can receive $2 off child admission through the month of August with a Palm Beach County Library card.
Through Labor Day Weekend, August 29 to September 1, children 12 and under get into the Zoo for free.
