Lifespan has partnered with the Hope Zoo Preservation Foundation to support the Hope Zoo during difficult times. The announcement was made at an official press conference held at the zoo on Wednesday, where the spring water company also shared that it would be adopting Katie, the camel. Executive members of both the company and the zoo gave their remarks, along with Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries Floyd Green, who presented a pre-recorded speech. The event was hosted by Lifespan brand ambassador Denyque and took place right by the camel enclosure, giving everyone the chance to interact with Katie. Here’s your bale of Something Extra.
