A new exhibit, Washed Ashore, will be opening at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium this April 22nd for Earth Day!
Visit this new conservation-themed exhibit to see sea creatures built using trash: sand toys, plastic bottles, colorful shards and plastic trash. All of the sculptures are made out of plastic debris that has washed up on beaches. Admire the creativity with which the exhibits were put together and also learn about the importance of looking after the environment. Find out how you can join the Zoo’s quest to reduce single-use plastics.
