On Sunday, April 2nd, the STAR Eco Station is kicking off Earth Day month with our 17th Annual Children’s Earth Day Extravaganza! We are thrilled to commemorate STAR’s 30th Anniversary of serving the community, and honor the many environmental superheroes who advocate for the preservation of our planet’s wildlife and natural resources.
Children’s Earth Day has been named the “Best Earth Day Pick” by the L.A. Times, as well as the “Best Children’s Earth Day” by L.A. Parent Magazine. This mega-festival will feature rescued animal encounters, celebrity guests, eco-friendly games and rides, environmental exhibits, student performances, face-painting, tons of food vendors, and more special surprises. In 2016, more than 30,000 people were in attendance and this year is anticipated to be even bigger!
The STAR Eco Station is dedicated to saving the lives of endangered exotic wildlife and creating a new generation of environmentalists who are committed to protecting Planet Earth. All proceeds from Children’s Earth Day will go directly towards the care of our rescued animals.

ABOUT THE HOST:
The STAR Eco Station is an environmental science museum, an exotic wildlife rescue center, and a haven for endangered and illegally-trafficked exotic animals confiscated by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The STAR Eco Station has grown tremendously since it began in 1997!
Erick, Sr. and Katya Bozzi, and their children, Erick, Jr. and Katiana, founded the STAR Eco Station in Culver City, CA, as a division of STAR, Inc. Working in collaboration with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and other go.vernment and environmental organizations, STAR Eco Station provides a last chance for illegal or abandoned at-risk exotic wildlife, as well as environmental education outreach programs in over 40 California school districts.
Visitors to the STAR Eco Station experience amazing hands-on lessons in ecology and environmentalism through breathtaking encounters with exotic birds, reptiles, mammals and ocean life in a tropical jungle setting. Environmental partnerships enhance the station with discovery exhibits from organizations such as the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Surfrider Foundation, and Santa Monica BayKeepers.
The STAR Eco Station’s mission is “Preservation through Education.” It carries out this mission every day by educating students, visitors to the STAR Eco Station and community members about the preservation of the environment and the inter-dependence of all living things.
