Orlando’s newest aquarium is among the first participants of the newest challenge to hit social media – #Pied4APorpoise!
Similar to the Ice Bucket challenge for ALS, the Pied for a Porpoise challenge is a fundraiser campaign asking participants to film throwing a pie at themselves or a fellow participant to raise awareness of the vaquita porpoise, the world’s most endangered marine animal. Only 30 vaquitas remain in the wild, and their population has been rapidly declining over the past five years.
SEA LIFE Orlando shared a video of their #Pied4APorpose challenge and the aquarium has challenged the Marine Science Center, Clearwater Marine Aquarium and SEA LIFE Charlotte to do the same!
In addition to the pie throwing, participants are also encouraged to donate $30 to VaquitaCPR.org for the National Marine Mammal Foundation to help save the Vaquita Porpoise.
