Did you know that March is Dolphin Awareness Month? While the Lehigh Valley Zoo doesn’t have dolphins, we do have plenty of aquatic species and because of this we find it extremely important to educate our guests about responsible consumption of seafood. The Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch® developed a program that we use on-site which helps consumers choose seafood that’s fished or farmed in ways that support a healthy ocean. They even provide recommendations about which seafood items are “Best Choices” or “Good Alternatives”, and which ones you should Avoid.
Join us here at the Lehigh Valley Zoo on Saturday, March 30 to learn more about the Seafood Watch Program and how you can help keep our oceans healthy!
