Toronto Zoo Lets People Name Cockroaches After Their Exes For Valentine's Day
Toronto zoo lets people name cockroaches after their exes for Valentine's Day. Everyone has someone in their lives that they despise, whether it be an obnoxious ex, a bothersome supervisor, or a nosy relative.
Currently, a Canadian zoo gives visitors the ability to be petty and express their emotions in an outlandish manner.
The Toronto Zoo Wildlife Conservancy has started a new "name-a-roach" campaign in honor of Valentine's Day. In this campaign, Toronto zoo lets people name cockroaches after their exes for Valentine's Day.
The zoo will let you name a cockroach after anyone who is "bugging" you for a minimum donation of $25 (Rs 1507). In a tweet, The company says:
People can name a cockroach by going online, clicking "Dedicate your donation," choosing "In honour of," and then entering a name in the appropriate field.
After that, they will get a digital certificate with the roach's name on it, a shareable digital image, and a tax receipt for their charitable contributions.
The Toronto Zoo, on the other hand, said that there are rules about what you can call the animals and that you can't use offensive language or hate speech.
According to Kelsey Godel, the Toronto Zoo Wildlife Conservancy's coordinator for donor stewardship and engagement:
Naming opportunities are not limited to exes - you can name a roach after your boss, ex-friend, relative, or anyone else that has been 'bugging' you.- Kelsey Godel
The Toronto Zoo and the Toronto Zoo Wildlife Conservancy value all wildlife. Cockroaches play an important ecological role in their rainforest habitats by decomposing forest litter and animal feces, which provide food for many other animals.
Despite their hair-raising reputation, cockroaches undeniably play a vital role in the sustainability of plant and animal habitats.'' The audience has reacted differently to the zoo's campaign, with some finding it humorous and others labeling it rude.
One said, ''Fun idea in theory but the e-card is gross. I love the Toronto zoo but not this. It just seems needlessly cruel.''Another called it ''a brilliant campaign'', while a third said, '' There is nothing about this that I don't love. Well played!!''
Another added, ''Big fan of these kinds of campaigns. Even though, it's been a LONG time since I was dumped by my ex-gf right around Valentines Day, this is prime gold. Perfection....''
