Plastic waste is responsible for the death of millions of animals each year who mistake them for food or become entangled in them. In the month of October 2019, Singapore Zoo and Jurong Bird Park are highlighting the danger posed by plastic pollution and educating visitors on how to “bin it right” and help protect wildlife.
Combat Plastics Pollution
The two wildlife parks have partnered with local artist Ernest Goh from the Ayer Ayer project to bring an interactive art installation to the parks. Shore Debris Tables consists of real sand collected from Singapore’s beaches. Kids can sieve though the sand to find microplastic pieces and learn about the impact of plastic pollution in the sea.
Kids can then make use of the plastic pieces to decorate a card to give to friends and help spread the message about plastic pollution.
At the Recycle Racers activity station, kids can pick up best practices when it comes to recycling and compete to sort out the recyclables.
Shore Debris Table and Recycle Racers will take place on 4, 5, 6, 12, 13, 19, 20, 26, 27, 28 October 2019 only.
