Busch Gardens Will Celebrate Earth Day Recycling Phones

In celebration of World Earth Day, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay is launching its cell phone recycling program that will benefit gorillas in the wild by reducing the need to mine for minerals used in electronic devices and therefore preserving their natural habitat. Guests will be able to donate recycled cell phones at the recycle receptacle at the entrance of Zagora Grill and will receive one kangaroo or lorikeet feeding voucher for every electronic device that is recycled. 

Guests can also donate to the SeaWorld and Busch Gardens Conservation Fund by purchasing animal-created artwork at the Critter Creations table in front of the Nairobi Train Station.

Additionally, Guests can participate in special animal interactions and Earth Day event-themed activities throughout the park. Theses offerings will be available on April 23, from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the following locations (activities are included with admission and are subject to change without notice):
  • Edge of Africa:
  • Myombe Reserve;
  • Penguin Pointe;
  • Cheetah Run;
  • Jungala;
  • Conservation Cabin;
  • Animal Care Center.
The SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund was created to raise support for grassroots conservation projects that truly make a difference. Since inception, the Fund has awarded more than 11 million dollars to nearly 800 organizations. Some of the areas of focus include animal rescue and rehabilitation, conservation education, habitat protection, and species research.
