To help promote wildlife conservation work, GEICO is taking its iconic gecko mascot on tour. The insurance company joined with The Association of Zoos and Aquariums and the San Diego Zoo for a nationwide tour featuring a live gecko exhibit, the GEICO Gecko costume character, and a series of animated television commercials.

"We are proud to support the work of AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums," said GEICO Chairman Tony Nicely. "Our Gecko has proven to be a powerful spokescreature for our auto and motorcycle insurance products. Now he's taking on an additional assignment to help promote the wildlife conservation work done by zoos and aquariums across America. We know he'll be great at spreading the word."

The three-year partnership between GEICO and the AZA will take the traveling GEICO Gecko exhibit to AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums across the United States. At each stop GEICO will make a contribution to wildlife conservation. GEICO will also be a lead sponsor for AZA's Earth Day Party for the Planet.
