“Entergy is committed to making a positive difference in the lives of New Orleanians in many ways, including protecting our natural resources,’’ said Charles Rice, President and CEO of Entergy New Orleans, LLC. “That is why we are proud to sponsor Earth Fest at Audubon Zoo, an annual event that offers a fun way for families to get outside together and learn more and celebrate the natural wonders of the planet we all share.’’

Families can compete in the “Jeans for Giraffes” conservation initiative for an opportunity to meet and greet Audubon’s giraffe herd. The Green Project is sponsoring a paint recycling program and the Krewe des Fleurs, a New Orleans-based costume collaborative dedicated to a more sustainable carnival culture, will appear. Visitors will also be among the first to visit Audubon Zoo’s expanded Jaguar Jungle.
