BRIDGEPORT - Aquarion Water Company joined with Bridgeport's Beardsley Zoo Saturday to raise money for environmental awareness.

About 1,500 people turned out for the zoo's 2015 Wild Wine, Beer and Food Safari, which also featured the fifth annual Aquarion Environmental Champion awards.

Zoo director Gregg Dancho says that while the zoo's main focus is conservation, the water company makes it a priority as well.

"By blending us together it's just a win-win situation," Dancho says.
