The Wildlife Conservation Society released an amusing video about a serious subject. “A Bronx Zoo Monkey Gets an iPad” was created to inspire New Yorkers to send a message to City Hall to restore the budget cuts to New York City’s cultural organizations, including the Bronx Zoo and New York Aquarium.
As New York City lawmakers negotiate the executive budget proposal, WCS is asking New Yorkers to go to www.wcs.org/cityhall to sign a petition urging officials to restore funding for the Bronx Zoo, New York Aquarium, and all the city’s cultural organizations. New Yorkers, families, businesses, and community and political leaders can collectively make a difference for culture in New York City by sending a message to City Hall that if this cut of nearly 58 percent is implemented, the impact will be immediately felt in communities across all five boroughs.
More than 150,000 messages have been delivered to City Hall since 2008 in support of culture.
Go to www.wcs.org/cityhall to sign the petition and save New York City’s cultural organizations.
