Nuts About Brazil
Nuts about Brazil: EAZA Atlantic Rainforest Campaign from Bristol Zoo Gardens
A summer of activities to support the Atlantic rainforest campaign
The aim was to raise awareness of the Mata Atlantica and the lion tamarins, and to produce practical things for people to do to alleviate some of the problems that occur.
The campaign involved a series of staffed and unstaffed activities in the Education Centre between July and September including:
• Spot the tamarins in the forest,
• Buy a tamarin tail,
• Forage like a tamarin,
• An animal name trail,
• Brazilian grocery store,
• Promotion of Brazil nuts.
Aluminium recycling and FSC through thumbprints and postcards.
The success of the campaign is demonstrated b y the 1500 tamarin tails that were sold and worn around the zoo; responses to a simple questionnaire on entry and exit to the zoo; the 200 postcards retuned to us showing people had bought FSC products and the £2300 raised for the campaign.
