Let the voting begin!
That’s right! You get to decide what we should name our newest Animal Ambassador! We know her by her ornithological alpha code designation, PEFA (pea-fuh), but soon she’ll have a new permanent name!
More than 100 name suggestions came in from Facebook, Instagram, by email and over the phone! Oh My! These names were INCREDIBLE! It was a hard decision with much deliberation. Things may have gotten a little heated 😉 as our dedicated Animal Care staff jockeyed to get their favorite names on the short list. See who is winning below!
Here are some of the incredible names suggested by the public that didn’t make the cut: 🙁
Timide (French word for “shy”)
LuLaRoe (because she has leggings on)
Aryialle – (pronounced: aerial)
PJ (because she looks like she is pajamas)
Elpida (Greek word for “hope”)
And SOOO Many More! Thank you all for your creativity!
Ready to vote?!
Here’s how it works!
To help provide for PEFA’s care and the care of her fellow Animal Ambassadors each vote will be made by a donation of $1.00. You can vote as many times as you’d like. If you are a house divided you can even split your $10.00 donation among two or three of your favorite names. If your favorite name falls behind, don’t worry! You can vote anytime until February 17th! In early March we’ll have a naming ceremony so you can come and meet the new ambassador and hear first hand from her keepers and trainers! For your donation you’ll receive an email receipt that can be used for tax purposes.
