Roots & Shoots - Orang Awareness

By Jaime Wilson, Zoo Blog Keeper

Over the weekend of November 15-16, Marigold Roots & Shoots, from Chico, and the Sacramento Zoo Teens came out to teach people about Orangutan Awareness Week and raise some money for the Orangs.

Roots & Shoots is the Jane Goodall Institute’s global, environmental and humanitarian program for youth. In classrooms, community-based clubs and youth groups, Roots & Shoots members plan and participate in activities and service projects that promote care and concern for animals, the environment, and the human community. Through its diverse international membership, Roots & Shoots fosters respect, understanding and exchange among individuals of different cultures and countries.

The Marigold Roots & Shoots and the Sacramento Zoo Teens did a great job, with beautiful displays, enthusiastic kids and a sense of contributing to something bigger than themselves. Thanks you guys!
