I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Funtivity Friday: Win a Family Four Pack of Tickets to ENDANGERED! Plus a Look at Some Endangered Species!

Endangered is a new Off Broadway show for kids. It is about endangered animals, and it is the first family-friendly eco-musical. The show was actually commissioned by the Smithsonian Zoo,  and it is now making its New York area debut.  The arrival of the show inspired us to take a closer look at some endangered species and the reasons they are becoming extinct. See directly below for more about the five different types of animals we learned about. For more about Endangered the Musical and/or to enter to win a family four pack of tickets to the show, see the bottom of this post.

1) Sea Otters - Sea otters are endangered due to various reasons. The first reason is water pollution. Another reason is  they are getting stuck in fishing nets. The last reason is they are getting attacked by sharks. One way to help sea otters is to ride a bike or walk sometime instead of using a car. Another way to help sea otters is to not leave garbage or fishing nets in the ocean. Save sea otters! Right below this are some pictures of what sea otters look like.


2) Asian elephants - Asian elephant are endangered because of habitat loss. Also they are being killed for their tusks. Save Asian elephants! Right below are some pictures of Asian elephants.


3) Bonobos - Bonobos are endangered because of humans hunting them. They are also endangered because of habitat loss. Save Bonobos! Right below are some pictures of Bonobos.


4) Red pandas - Red pandas are endangered because they are hunted for their fur. Also, they get caught in traps meant for other animals. Save red pandas! Right below are some pictures of red pandas.

5) Snow leopards - Snow leopard are endangered  because they are being killed by farmers. They are also endangered due to habitat loss. Save snow leopards! Right below are some pictures of snow leopards.
