Hard Rock Cafe

« Back to Promotional Partners



Thirty-nine AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums have partnered with Hard Rock Cafes in their cities for a cross-promotional program featuring the sale of collectible Species Conservation pins. Each unique pin depicts a species that was chosen by each member institution and is only available at the corresponding Hard Rock Cafe gift store. Purchase of the pin generates a $2 donation to support the participating zoo and provides Hard Rock Pin collectors and local Hard Rock Cafe patrons a chance to support their local AZA-accredited zoo or aquarium. This new Species Conservation pin series will be launched this Fall 2012 with sales continuing through Spring 2013.
