Zebra Pen Partners with the Association of Zoos and Aquariums for the Celebration of the 3rd Annual Z-Month

Edison, NJ (June 7, 2016) – This June will mark the third annual Z-month and collaboration with the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) for Zebra Pen Corp., a global leader in the writing instrument industry. The celebration of Z-month will coincide with the partnership with the AZA to help generate global awareness about conservation efforts for the world’s largest zebra species—the Grevy’s zebra.

As a nonprofit organization, the AZA strives to advance zoos and aquariums in the areas of conservation, animal welfare, education, science, and recreation. AZA-accredited institutions gave $160 million in support of approximately 2,700 conservation projects in over 115 countries. Collaborating with the Grevy’s Zebra Trust, an organization set up in 2007 to shed light on the urgent need for conservation of Grevy’s zebra in the rangelands of Ethiopia and Kenya, the AZA is able to diligently work to protect this endangered species. During Z-month, Zebra Pen donates $20,000 to the AZA to help aid in protecting the Grevy’s zebra.

“We could not be more excited to be partnering with the Association of Zoos and Aquariums for the third year in a row to celebrate our annual Z-month,” said John Smith, Employee at Zebra Pen Corporation. “At Zebra Pen, zebras are part of our foundation and brand. When the opportunity arises to bring awareness to the conservation of these beautiful, endangered animals and involve our consumers in a fun way during the process, we can never pass on it.”

Z-month kicks off in June with a month of fun and giveaways—all to help spread the world globally on conservation efforts for the Grevy’s zebra. Zebra Pen will be running a giveaway of their Z-grip pens on their Facebook page from June 6-10. Every Wednesday this month Zebra Pen will test your zebra knowledge by posting quiz questions on their Facebook page. You could win a 4-pack of tickets to your local AZA-affiliated zoo or aquarium if you can correctly answer these questions. Zebra Pen will be posting content all month long on Facebook regarding facts about Grevy’s zebra, ways to donate, fun polls and quizzes, and much more. Also throughout the month, Zebra Pen is offering 50% off all wide-barrel items. Check out their Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for more information about giveaways and all things Grevy’s zebra.
