What is a Backyard Action Hero?

A Backyard Action Hero (BAH) is a kid who is really into wildlife and habitats and is ready to take action to help protect them. A BAH cares about the animals and plants in his/her own backyard and in other parts of the world! The Louisville Zoo is a really great place to learn all about plants and animals.

It’s full of fun facts and awesome activities that you can do by yourself or with family and friends. You’ll discover ways that YOU can help protect the environment. It’s not only cool to help with conservation – it can be fun too!
