Please note: On Wednesday April 24 at Franklin Park Zoo and Thursday, April 25 at Stone Zoo, volunteers, zoo employees and local emergency responders will take part in routine animal escape exercises. While the exercise is occurring, guests have the opportunity to participate in the evacuation portion, and may be asked to move to certain areas within the Zoo for a brief period of time (not to exceed 10 minutes). These exercises are an important part of our preparedness training, and we appreciate your participation and understanding. If you have any questions about what to expect, please don't hesitate to contact us at 617-989-2000 or info@zoonewengland.org.

Plastic Free July EcoChallenge

Join the movement to refuse single-use plastics. The Plastic Free Ecochallenge is a month-long effort for all of us to reduce our single-use plastic consumption. Discover, learn, and explore new ways to take care of wildlife and the world we all share.

Registration Coming Soon!

In this friendly competition, you’ll connect with other teams, share your progress in the social feed, earn points for taking action, and watch the impact you make add up in realtime! The EcoChallenge website guides you through ways to avoid plastic on an everyday basis, offering tips and encouragement throughout the process. Choose ‘everyday’ or ‘one-time’ actions from a collection of 65+ suggested actions (shown here), or get creative and create your own plastic-free actions! Make sure to check in each day of the challenge to ensure that your actions are tallied in our collective impact and that you score points for every action completed.

See how four weeks of learning and action can add up to a lifetime of positive change for you, your community, and the planet!
