Origami Panther Friend for Marisol at the PBC Zoo and Conservation Society

Apr 13, 2014 11:00am - 1:00pm

The Florida Earth Festival kicks off 3 weeks of programming on Sat, April 5th at 11 am at the Palm Beach Zoo and Conservation Society.

MG Foundation, in association with Florida Earth Festival, will be delivering a Life Size Origami Panther next to Marisol, the Florida Panther. The goal of Origami Everglades Project is to raise awareness about the endangered Florida Panthers, their vulnerable habitat, and our need to protect and restore the Everglades. Programming at Florida Earth Festival will make the connections between the panthers’ existence and our own. Protection and restoration of the Everglades is essential to the survival of the Florida Panthers, and to the health of our water supply.

The Origami Panthers will find their home at the Origami Everglades Exhibition during the Florida Earth Festival fair weekend on April 19th and 20th at University Woodlands Park in Boca Raton; but they will be roaming throughout Palm Beach County public spaces as part of the Junior Naturalist Panther Sightings Scavenger Hunt before then. Origami Panthers will roam among these sites, and notices of Panther Activity will be reported on website: on www.FloridaEarthFestival.com
