The New Ford Mustang Mach-E is a Step Towards Cleaner Air
Loveland Living Planet Aquarium is grateful for our partnership with the Utah Ford Stores. In addition to their recent contribution of a two-year lease on a 2021 Ford Escape SE AWD for our six-millionth guest prize, Ford is the sponsor of the Expedition Asia hall which houses many endangered species including Clouded leopards, Binturongs, Asian arowana, and more. Several of these animals are members of Species Survival Plan® (SSP) Programs focused on conservation and population stability.
Everything that we do at the Aquarium, be it animal care, education and visiting schools, or building partnerships, is a part of our mission to build and support healthy ecosystems across our Living Planet.
Ford has hosted two different scavenger hunts in the Ford Expedition Asia hall in 2021 to help support the Children’s Justice Center. From this fun guest experience, they donated a total of $10,000 to support child victims of crime.
The Aquarium is also grateful to the Utah Ford Stores for their sponsorship of our holiday event: Festival of the Seas, which ran from the end of November to the end of December and welcomed over 7,500 guests.
The Utah Ford Stores is a proud supporter of our Utah communities. They are involved in various community programs such as school pantries, food banks, warm coat donations, serving people battling cancer, and supporting children recovering from abuse. Their goal is to serve the community through various programs designed for connecting with our Utah families, which includes Aquarium guests.
