TokensDirect has available new conservation token designs available from stock for faster shipment. Ideal for use with “Quarters for Conservation” programs, these attractive tokens feature a penguin, a giraffe or a jaguar on the front with wording to direct them to vote for a conservation project on the back. These standard designs can be minted quickly and shipped within five days from receipt of order. The tokens are ideal for zoos, aquariums and other animal-themed attractions with a conservation orientation.
Conservation tokens are an excellent way to directly engage patrons in the conservation process because they can vote for their favorite project. For the past year the Brevard Zoo in Melbourne, Fla., has participated in the Quarters for Conservation project, where 25 cents from each admission is used to fund a conservation project. Since its inception on January 1, 2011, the program has generated $38,546 that has helped to fund nine conservation projects. In addition to raising money, the program is helping to educate visitors about conservation and how they can help.
