Inspiring Teenagers Raise Money for Reef Check with Coral Carnival
Last month, a group of six teenagers from the Roger Williams Park Zoo Roots & Shoots group in Rhode Island organized a carnival for coral reef conservation. Titled The C.O.R.A.L (Conservation of Reefs and Aquatic Life) Carnival, the event was a family friendly affair with 12 different games themed to the cause and designed to raise awareness of the problems facing coral reefs. The carnival also included a raffle in which tickets were won at the games and traded in to win gift baskets donated by local businesses. A total of $608 was raised and donated to Reef Check!
