Sign up today and take ACTION for Wildlife - Registration fee includes a Run for the Wild t-shirt, complementary Bronx Zoo day pass, free entry to the Congo Gorilla Forest, a pre-run warm up from YogaWorks, complimentary post-run massages, and post-run refreshments.
Post-run activities and the WCS Earth Expo will offer Run for the Wild participants the chance to participate in family yoga classes, meet former NFL star Tiki Barber and exercise on his Tiki Rec playground created from recycled materials, see live music and entertainment, learn about wildlife conservation from experts, including ocean explorer Fabien Cousteau, and enjoy eco-friendly activities and programming.
By participating in the Run for the Wild you will help support the Wildlife Conservation Society and its efforts to save wildlife and wild places worldwide.
The Wildlife Conservation Society does this through science, global conservation, education and the management of the world's largest system of urban wildlife parks, led by the flagship Bronx Zoo. Together these activities change attitudes towards nature and help people imagine wildlife and humans living in harmony.
The United Nations has declared 2009 the Year of the Gorilla in an effort to spotlight a species at great risk of extinction. In support of this campaign, fundraising efforts from the first annual Run for the Wild will help to protect gorillas and other wildlife and wild places worldwide.
