Celebrate World Penguin Day with a Special Stonyfield Facebook Live Event!

Hey animal lovers! I have an exciting announcement for you!

Tomorrow, April 25th, is World Penguin Day. That's awesome for so many reasons, but the most awesome of all is a special Facebook Live event happening with our friends at Stonyfield! By checking out their Stonyfield Facebook page at 12:00 pm EST, you can join them in an engaging discussion about these majestic seabirds, as well as see some cool footage taken live at the Mystic Aquarium's Penguin Encounter!

Stonyfield YoKids, one of our favorite brands of yogurt, is sponsoring the AZA SAFE (Saving Animals from Extinction) program. They are giving funds to the cause of keeping nature's most beautiful and at-risk animals around for generations to appreciate and enjoy. They are also doing some amazing work to get kids and their parents excited about animals! This year, they will support conservation efforts for 10 endangered species, including the African Penguin.

The lovable African Penguin and most endangered AZA SAFE species will be featured prominently on Stonyfield YoKids packaging this year. (Have your kids collect them all!) The special packaging will also feature an offer to get families out to visit any of the 131 participating AZA accredited member zoos and aquariums in their own communities ( The full list can be found here.) Now through the end of September families who buy two specially-marked YoKids yogurt multipacks will receive a FREE kid’s admission to their local AZA-accredited zoo or aquarium when they also buy an adult ticket!

You can help your kids learn more about endangered animals with a series of free videos that Stonyfield offers parents and educators. These video ask fun questions like “Can a cow save a penguin or a sea turtle or a cheetah?” We think the answer may be YES!

Did you know? Stonyfield is a big believer in supporting things in natural. As the country's leading organic yogurt maker, they have always done things a more natural way. (They recently announced that they will be using less sugar in their yogurts. This is in addition to their already oustanding promise to not avoid toxic persistent pesticides, artificial hormones, antibiotics and GMOs!)

Their YoKids products come in cups, squeezers and smoothies, and they are something my kids reach for anytime they want a better-for-you snack!

Learn more about Stonyfield and be sure to check out the Facebook Live tomorrow!
