The Association of Zoos & Aquariums, with its member aquariums and zoos and a variety of partners, are taking action to save species through AZA SAFE: Saving Animals From Extinction. SAFE combines the power of zoo and aquarium visitors with the resources and collective expertise of AZA members and partners, all focused on saving species. Our collective action will help save vulnerable wildlife species from extinction and protect them for future generations.
We hope many of you are already aware of the collection of engaging picture books that are now available. Each features one of the 10 SAFE Signature Species. We partnered with Unite for Literacy, a publishing company focused on providing free children’s books to families around the world, to develop the books. Many individuals and organizations also helped us write and image the books. We hope that you enjoy the books as much as we do! Please feel free to share them with everyone you know that has young children. You can find them all online here: http://uniteforliteracy.com/aza/safe. If you are interested in “embedding” the SAFE digital bookshelf on your website, please contact Rob Vernon (firstname.lastname@example.org) for the embed code.
