Do your kids love visiting the zoo? I’ve got the scoop on how to get free Knoxville Zoo tickets [+ 140 other Zoos!] this Summer.

Did you watch April the Giraffe on Facebook Live at all over the past couple of months? I admit I was just as intrigued as the rest of the world and would check up on the famous giraffe every few days. I made sure to include the girls in the conversation too as they love animals, like most kiddos do.
They even had an up close and personal encounter with a couple of giraffes at a local zoo a couple of years ago. We enjoy visiting the zoo because it’s such a learning experience. While it’s great to be able to see these lovely animals on your phone at home, there’s a whole other experience seeing them up close and in person.
Speaking of animals, did you know that today, April 25th is World Penguin Day? To commemorate World Penguin Day, Stonyfield and AZA are hosting a Facebook Live for kids and their parents to get a firsthand look at these majestic seabirds, as well as the conservation work being done to save them. You can see the recording of a Facebook Live broadcast here.
I know what you’re wondering… So what do penguins and zoos and organic yogurt have in common? And how do I get free Knoxville Zoo tickets?!
First, you’ll see the lovable African Penguin on Stonyfield YoKids products this year. You’ll also find an on-pack offer to get families out to visit any of the 131 participating AZA accredited member zoos and aquariums in their own communities (click here for a list). 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.
By encouraging more kids and families to visit their local participating zoo or aquarium and experience endangered species firsthand, Stonyfield hopes to inspire a lifelong appreciation of our planet and commitment to animal conservation in the next generation.
We’ll be visiting our local AZA accredited zoo, Zoo Knoxville, in the coming weeks and the girls are so excited! Sophia can’t wait to see the elephants while all Moreaya can talk about is the zebras.
What is your child’s favorite animal to see at the Zoo?
Be sure to grab a specially marked pack of Stonyfield YoKids organic yogurt to head to the zoo for free this Summer!
