Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleaders swimsuit calendar: Behind the scenes (PHOTOS)
The wraps have been taken off the 2016 Eagles Cheerleaders Swimsuit Calendar (and, well, several of the cheerleaders).
A portion of the calendar’s proceeds will be donated to the Elmwood Park Zoo in support of the cheerleaders' mission to promote wildlife and environmental conservation, according to the Eagles organization.
The zoo is the home to Noah, a live bald eagle that makes special appearances throughout the year at various Eagles events.
This year's cover model is Casey Baldwin, a six-year veteran of the squad. The cheerleaders partnered with Apple Vacations and Iberostar Resorts for the 2016 calendar photoshoot in Riviera Maya, Mexico.
As part of the trip, the squad dedicated time to the surrounding community by focusing their efforts on local youth and wildlife conservation, the Eagles organization said.
The cheerleaders spent a day at the Little Yellow School House in Isla Mujeres, Mexico, a school for special needs children completely funded by donations, where they surprised the students with suitcases full of school supplies and Eagles gifts, it said.
The squad also visited Tortugranja, a hatchery for endangered sea turtles, as a way to bring awareness to the farm’s preservation endeavor.
The cheerleaders also traveled to Xel-Ha in Solidaridad, Quintana Roo, Mexico, where they participated in a team-building exercise which included zip lining, cliff jumping, rope swinging and balance coordination on the trepachanga.
