Wondering what you can do to make the planet a better place? Join us in the #140challenge in honor of the Maryland Zoo’s 140th birthday! Make a pledge to accomplish 140 little tasks, that by the end of the challenge will make a BIG impact! Use the hashtag to show off what you’re doing and to get inspired by others! Imagine what can be accomplished if 10 people complete the challenge? 100? 1000?! So help us celebrate 140 years of conservation at the Maryland Zoo by joining the #140challenge

Not sure where to start? Here are some ideas:

  • Pick up 5 pieces of trash every day, that’s 140 by the end of the month!
  • Refill your water bottle 140 times!
  • Instead of using plastic bags at the grocery, bring your own reusable shopping bags!
  • Bike/bus/carpool/walk/train 140 miles!

The list goes on! Spread the word, spread conservation, and watch change in action!
