BZS To Host Zoom Around The Sound On Sept 18
The Bermuda Zoological Society will be holding the annual Zoom Around The Sound event on Saturday, September 18th.
A spokesperson said, “Are you ready to zoom with the Bermuda Zoological Society? Join the annual Zoom Around the Sound event on Saturday, 18th September and help the BZS raise funds for their education and conservation programmes.
“After over a year of virtual activities, Zoom Around the Sound will be held physically at the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo [BAMZ] as a Safekey event. This fun event encourages all participants to enjoy the natural beauty of Harrington Sound as they run, walk or cycle around the sound.
“The race route is as follows: start at BAMZ, follow counter clock-wise North Shore Road, Middle Road, Harrington Sound Road, Wilkinson Ave, North Shore and to finish outside BAMZ.
“Safety is key! While walking, running or riding please travel on the left-hand side of the road, in double or single file, keeping on the sidewalks were possible. Please wear protective headgear when riding a bike. Also, obey all traffic signs.
“When you finish your zoom, the generous sponsors, Ben & Jerry’s, Seventh Generation, Nature Valley and the staff of Butterfield & Vallis, will have goodies to share!
“Feeling cautious? Not ready to burst your bubble and participate in a physical event? You can still zoom with us! For you, we are also including a virtual event again this year!
“Registration is open here until the morning of the event.
“Drive through to pickup your participant packages at BAMZ on Wednesday, September 15th from 5pm to 7pm.
“Should the in-person event not take place, all registrants will automatically be transferred to our virtual event.
“The shared mission of BZS and BAMZ is to inspire appreciation and care of island environments, and as the support charity for BAMZ, the BZS is an example of a highly successful non-profit/public partnership. Each year the BZS provide more than 8,000 free educational experiences through our Stempel Foundation BZS Schools Programme in addition to popular community programmes for all ages, development of BAMZ exhibits, and conservation and research programmes.
“Each year, BZS Volunteers contribute over 10,000 hours of valuable husbandry support to the Aquarium and Zoo with all programmes being accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums.”
