Run and Fun In the Southend This Saturday

It’s a Saturday filled with activity and adventure in the Southend this weekend.

Pound your protein smoothie and throw on your running shoes for the Stacey Konwiser Memorial Save the Tiger 5K  at the Palm Beach Zoo. This year’s race is all the more special as it pays tribute to the life of the Zoo’s beloved Lead Keeper and her love of all cats…especially tigers.

race

In honor of Stacey, Team AC-27, named after her radio call sign and comprised of several zookeepers and other staff, will also be running and walking in the race. Team AC-27’s ‘virtual team’ is now comprised of 120 people across 17 states! There will also be a ‘Remembrance Table’ in the fountain area where attendees can leave notes of encouragement for Stacey and her loved ones.

You’ll run or walk through the beautiful paths of Dreher Park and finish the race inside the Palm Beach Zoo passing the Tiger River habitat where 2 of the Zoo’s 4 Malayan tigers reside. You’ll also run past wallabies, Fennec foxes, New Guinea singing dogs, ocelots, and siamang gibbons on your way to the finish line at the fountain plaza.

Your registration includes admission to the Zoo for the day and discount coupons for friends and family to see you finish and explore the Zoo for the day. And, for the first time ever, every runner/walker registered will receive a shirt. (Note: The first 650 registered will be able to pick up their shirt at a packet pickup location or at race day check-in. Everyone from #651 on will get their shirt after race day.)

The Malayan tiger is the most endangered of the 5 remaining species of tigers. It’s estimated that there are fewer than 250 in the wild. The Palm Beach Zoo works closely with the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), supporting species and habitat research and protection at Endau-Rompin National Park in Malaysia. A portion of each participant’s race registration fee helps fund the Zoo’s involvement with WCS.

Awards will be given in the following categories:
Top 3 Overall Male & Female
Top 3 Masters Male & Female
Top 3 Male ages 9 & under, 10-14, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70-79, 80+
Top 3 Female ages 9 & under, 10-14, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70-79, 80

Take A Journey Through Florida’s Wildlife Corridor This Thursday

C Ward Photo

Travel to places you never knew existed in Florida and learn their predicted fate at the Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society’s “From Glades to Gulf: 1,000 Miles in 100 Days, a Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition” Conservation Leadership Lecture. Renowned photojournalist Carlton Ward, Jr. and conservationist Mallory Lykes Dimmitt team up this Thursday, April 16 from 6-8PM as part of the Zoo’s popular lecture series.

Black Bear

In 2012, Ward and Dimmitt, along with bear biologist Joe Guthrie and filmmaker Elam Stoltzfus undertook the Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition in which they covered 1000 miles in 100 days by hiking, biking and paddling their way through the Florida landscapes from the Everglades National Park toward Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge in southern Georgia.

The Speakers

CW

Carlton Ward, Jr. is a conservation photographer and eighth-generation Floridian focused on Florida’s living heritage. His work is exhibited widely and published in magazines including Audubon, Smithsonian, Geo and Nature Conservancy. He began his career with seven expeditions to the Congo rainforests of Gabon with the Smithsonian Institution, resulting in his award-winning book, “The Edge of Africa,” with a foreword by Colin Powell presidential exhibit with the United Nations in New York. While remaining engaged internationally, Ward’s primary purpose is to protect Florida’s nature and culture through art. His 2009 book, “Florida Cowboys,” won a silver medal in the Florida Book Awards, and Popular Photography Magazine featured him for working to save vanishing America.

Mallory

Mallory Lykes Dimmitt is a seventh generation Floridian whose childhood was partly spent exploring the lands and waters of central Florida. She pursued her passion for the outdoors by receiving her B.S. in Natural Resources from the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee. She was also awarded a Doris Duke Conservation Fellowship at Duke University’s Nicholas School of Environment, where she earned a Master’s of Environmental Management.

Salt therapy is a modern variation of the Eastern European tradition of spending time in natural salt caves for health. Kaffee’s recently introduced Salt Room is the epitome of relaxation, complete with a backlit Himalayan salt wall and zero gravity chairs.  Patrons lay back and breathe in the benefits of the micronized aerosol of purified salt mist created by a state of the art Halogenerator.

According to Kaffee Keldie, ” [Dry Salt Therapy] is a non toxic, safe holistic way to relax and improve the lung function and the skin but actually the whole of the body feels refreshed so we really like to say it is a Body Wellness Therapy”.
