Action for Apes Challenge:The Action for Apes Challenge is a yearly contest hosted by the Houston Zoo to see which school or community organization can recycle the most cell phones by April 30th, 2015. By recycling old phones with the zoo you can help protect animals like chimpanzees and gorillas that live in areas where cell phone materials are mined. Other items that can be recycled are: Cell phones; Smart phones; iPods or other MP3 players; iPads or other tablets; wifi hot spots; digital cameras; handheld gaming devices; and GPS. Drop off your items at the front desk.
Grady can win a one-of-a-kind painting done by the Houston Zoo’s chimpanzee troop! The winning school or organization can pick the colors to be used on the painting, and the painting can be hung at your institution as a reminder of your efforts to protect chimpanzees and gorillas in the wild.
