Hello Everyone! Hard to believe we are into July already!
We hope you all love this month’s letter, which we’ll be mailing out after the 15th. We thought summer was the perfect time to introduce Giant Anteaters to our little subscribers. They are such fascinating animals! It’s incredible how they were designed especially for eating ants and other insects with their long pointy snouts and their spaghetti-like tongues.
If you haven't entered our GIVEAWAY yet for an adorable, plush anteater, head over to our Instagram or Facebook page and find the original post. We also posted in the Newsletter section of the website. Enter to win so you can have this adorable anteater on hand for when your letter arrives! (U.S. residents only)
Hurry, deadline is Monday, July 13, 2020 at 11:59 PM (EST)

WANT TO DO MORE TO HELP?
Giant anteaters are disappearing because of habitat destruction, hunting, and road kills. Only about 5,000 anteaters remain in the wild. The giant anteater is listed as a “threatened” species, and it is considered extinct in areas of Belize, Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Uruguay.

This zoo has more anteaters than anywhere in North America. They are working to increase their numbers and ensure their survival. Excellent information on this site. There’s also a very informative video with footage of some of their anteaters!
