For today's FRIDAY PHOTO FUN, help us caption this great gorilla picture! Did you know that recycling your cell phone at the Zoo helps to protect gorillas in Africa?
Coltan, a metallic ore used in making cell phones and other electronic devices, is mined in the forests of the Democratic Republic of Congo (prime gorilla habitat). By recycling your cell phone at the Zoo you are contributing to c...onservation in two ways: reducing the demand for coltan and keeping electronics out of landfills.
We encourage you to recycle your cell phones at the Zoo tomorrow on St. Patrick’s Day. Bring an old cell phone to the Box Office on Saturday, March 17 and receive one free admission to the Zoo and RainForest (offer valid that day only).
