One weekend this summer Nordens Ark, Kolmården Wildlife park, Parken Zoo, Skånes Djurpark, Slottsskogen Zoo, Rovdjurscentret De 5 Stora and Järvzoo joined forces and organized a national campaign day to highlight the Pole to Pole campaign and raise awareness about the threats of climate change.

They sent out a joint press release in order to get as much media coverage as possible but each park created their own activities for the day. This included a recycling contest, displaying reptiles and educate the audience about their energy saving strategies, face painting, guided tours focusing on polar species and exhibitions. Some parks also minimized their own CO2 emission for the day by driving vehicles as little as possible and serving vegetarian food in the restaurant at a reduced price.
