At this year’s event, participants have the opportunity to learn about how zoos cooperatively manage endangered species through breeding, research and contributing to field conservation efforts. As well as the environmental benefit of choosing wine bottle sealed with natural Cork instead of fabricated plastic corks. Cork is a natural, renewable, recyclable and biodegradable material obtained through an environmentally friendly harvesting process.
