Pittsburgh Zoo Joins the Climate Campaign

Pittsburgh Zoo has started a new program called One Degree of Change, which is aimed at the local people of Pittsburgh or any community – to give them hints and tips on how they can help climate change in their every day lives. 

Dr Peter Fashing is the founder of this initiative, following a trip to Ethiopia, where he saw the devastating effect of global warming on the native populations of Gelada Baboons. The program is run through workshops at the Zoo and a website, which gives excellent, easy tips for every household.

  • Walk, ride a bike or take public transport
  • Change the light bulbs in your home to energy efficient
  • Buy local produce from farmers markets
  • Don’t waste paper or plastic
  • Compost your food to make home-made fertilizer
