New York City is home to some amazing sights and activities. One of the best is the Bronx Zoo, which provides an educational and fun-filled experience for people of all ages. This summer, the Bronx Zoo will turn NYC into a city-wide social photo safari by inviting consumers to learn about “120 Ways #NYisWild.”  The more people share their in-park photos using the #NYisWild hashtag, the more chances they have to win a trip to Belize, one of the locations where the Wildlife Conservation Society—owner and operator of the Bronx Zoo – does some exciting and relevant conservation work.

We had such a fun time with #NYisWild. I took my family and my sister-in-law, brother-in-law and two nieces last week and we had a blast running around, trying to complete our tasks. It was a great way to make a trip to the Zoo even more of adventure.
