This Valentine’s Day, the WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo is giving you the opportunity to name one of the world’s most poisonous snakes after your ex, but for a good cause.
The campaign invites keen parties to fill out an online form that asks for your ex’s name, and why they deserve to have this snake named after him or her. Participants will have to provide an AU$1 donation that will go to the WILD LIFE Conservation Fund to enter the contest.
That’s not all however. The winner will receive a certificate and the chance to visit this snake for free daily for the next year.
WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo announced the competition on its Instagram, “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’ by naming a brown snake (one of the world’s most venomous snakes) after them at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo! To enter, simply head to the link in our bio and tell us why your ex deserves to have a snake named after them along with a $1 donation to the @wildlifeconservationfund. Competition entries close 13 Feb 2019.”
On the contest webpage, Mark Connolly, General Manager at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo explains, “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 zoo’s reptile team will select the winning name, which will be released on Valentine’s Day. The competition closes at 11:59pm AEDT on 13 February 2019.
