A Snaky Valentine's Day

Enter the competition to have a snake named after your ex!

03 Feb 2019 18:05:38

Name a snake after your ex this Valentine's Day!

Is your ex a snake? If so, now is your opportunity to cement their ‘snaky status’ this Valentine's Day by naming a brown snake (one of the world’s most venomous snakes) after them at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo!

For your opportunity to name the snake after your ex, fill out the competition entry form below and provide your ex’s name and the reason why they deserve to have a snake named after them along with a $1 donation that will go towards the WILD LIFE Conservation Fund.

Not only will you know that your ex has a snake named after them, but you will also receive a certificate and the opportunity to visit the snake for FREE every day for the next year.

All donations will go towards the WILD LIFE Conservation Fund - a fund dedicated to conserving Australian native wildlife by funding research and conducting educational programs and events. Through these actions we aim to give people an understanding of their place in the natural world and their need for individual and collective action for a sustainable future.

Mark Connolly, General Manager at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo says, “We hope that by providing someone unlucky in love the opportunity to name WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo’s very own brown snake after their ex, we can give them something else to celebrate on Valentine’s Day this year. We’re also throwing in an annual pass to WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo, so that you can also visit the snake in Darling Harbour as many times as you want during the next year!”

The reptile team will select the winning name, which be announced on Valentine’s Day.

Competition closes 11:59pm AEDT on 13 February 2019. Click here for full competition terms and conditions
