Flamingo Flocking?

Here is a fun and colorful fundraiser for the American Association of Zookeepers (AAZK), Greater Sacramento Chapter.

Flamingo FlockingYou’ve seen them flock on TV. You’ve seen them flock at the Sacramento Zoo. Now you can see them flock to your neighbor’s front lawn! Sacramento’s chapter of the American Association of Zookeepers (Greater Sac AAZK) is helping a flock of bright pink, plastic flamingos move along their migratory path through the greater Sacramento area, and you can choose which residences they stop at! Surprise your friends, relatives, or neighbors with a bright flock of flamingos covering their lawn. Flocking makes every occasion humorous and special, and it can turn an ordinary day into something a bit more whimsical.

How it WorksFor a $25 donation (new price of $40 in July 2011 and after) to AAZK, the Migration Management Team will release a flock of plastic flamingos onto the lawn of your intended recipient. These flamingos migrate under the cover of darkness, meaning they will go unnoticed at their current roost until morning. They will typically roost for 48 hours and then, with the assistance of Sacramento Zookeepers, continue along their migratory route. A large greeting sign along with a personalized message from you will accompany the flock. The recipients will also receive an explanation of the flocking, care instructions, flamingo fun facts, and the number to the Plastic Animal Control Hotline.
