ENCOURAGING ENDANGERED ANIMAL EDUCATION
Here at Yowie World, our mission is to educate both children and adults from all over the world about the importance of saving the natural world and protecting endangered species. In 2020, we donated some of our products to the Racine Zoo for their Wonderland of Lights drive-through event. The Racine Zoo strives to protect animals and is home to some of the world’s most remarkable and endangered wildlife. The Zoo passed along some Yowie products to local students who were doing an endangered species program at their school, which shows if we all work together to educate each other about endangered species, we can make a real impact!
