Our generation is lucky to live in a world with elephants, lions, gorillas, and countless other species. They need our help for a bright future, which is why I’ve decided to participate in the WCS Run for the Wild at the Bronx Zoo on April 29.
Today, animals are going extinct 10,000 times faster than ever before. African elephant populations have plummeted due to poaching to feed the ivory trade, and recent news from the field has often been bleak. Lion populations in Uganda have declined by 30% in ten years. War, hunting, and habitat loss have had a severe impact on gorilla populations.
I want to help, which is why I’m running in the WCS Run for the Wild at the Bronx Zoo on April 29th. The 5k run supports WCS in establishing and helping to manage parks and reserves, safeguarding animals from poaching with active monitoring and patrolling, and inspiring communities to protect their local wildlife.
Thank you for your support. I can't wait to tell you about my run through the Bronx Zoo!
