Sip for The Sea will happen very soon, on Thursday, September 12th from 6-9 p.m. at the Central Park Zoo in New York City, Fifth Avenue @ 64th Street
THE WILDLIFE CONSERVATION SOCIETY hosts its first SIP FOR THE SEA benefit to support the New York Aquarium as it recovers from Hurricane Sandy. SIP FOR THE SEA features pairings of sustainable wines from The Hess Collection with sustainable seafood and other special offerings from some of New York’s top restaurants. This signature event will be a festive evening and an opportunity to learn about the importance of marine conservation in the waters around New York.
The New York Aquarium was devastated by the impact of the hurricane, just days before it was to break ground for an exciting new exhibit called Ocean Wonders: Sharks! Since that time plans to expand the Aquarium, developed in 2009 in partnership with the City of New York, have become a joint commitment to rebuild and transform the Aquarium’s exhibits, programming, and Coney Island campus. The New York Aquarium reopened on a partial basis in May. It is our hope to be fully reopened in the spring of 2016.
The Wildlife Conservation Society saves wildlife and wild places worldwide. We do so through science, global conservation, education and the management of the world's largest system of urban wildlife parks, led by the flagship Bronx Zoo. Together these activities change attitudes towards nature and help people imagine wildlife and humans living in harmony. WCS is committed to this mission because it is essential to the integrity of life on Earth.
