Water education

Blijdorp Zoo

How waterproof are you?

The increase in greenhouse gases is causing global climate change. The temperature is rising and the weather extremes follow each other in rapid succession. Through climate adaptation, we can also devise smart solutions to help nature. For example, Blijdorp Zoo has a huge underground basin where rainwater is stored. This saves the content of 75,000(!) bathtubs with tap water per year.

Awareness

It is good to become aware of your water consumption and to communicate this information. Peerdrops, together with students from Hogeschool Utrecht, devised a concept that provides insight into the extent to which you contribute to water conservation. By means of a number of questions you arrive at a result that is related to an animal species that uses a lot or little water. Finally, you get handy tips for home on how to decrease your water waste.

Epilogue :)

A little too generous with water? Have you ever seen the elephants bathe in Blijdorp Zoo? The bull can weigh up to 6,000 kg! So quite a bit of water moves when he takes a bath. Your water consumption could also be a bit better. Press the button below and see how you progress a level on your next visit. You Bull you!
