From outstanding exhibits to first-class educational activities and family-oriented programs, Brevard Zoo continues to lead the way in Central Florida with activities for the entire family. Only here can you have fun moving from tree to tree on Treetop Trek, take a kayaking safari through the wilderness or experience the magic of personal animal encounters.
Brevard Zoo is a prized jewel in our community. We play a vital role in the local education, tourist, and conservation communities; and most important, we contribute to your quality of life.
|Ways to donate:|
- We opened Treetop Trek, an exciting new outdoor adventure where visitors experience nature in a whole new way---high up in the trees!
- We built a new, state of the art Animal Care Center, utilizing green technologies and the best practices to provide veterinary care and commissary services for our animals.
- We launched Quarters for Conservation, a fun new initiative that greatly enhances our wildlife conservation work while engaging our community. In 2011, we are on course to donate over $30,000 to conservation projects including Oyster Restoration, Sea Turtle Research, Great Ape Research, Mangrove Restoration, and Dolphin Research.
- Our Zoo School program continued to serve four Title I elementary schools, which sent all of their fifth grade students (about 400 children this year) on an amazing educational journey.
One of the alumni of the Zoo School is a perfect example: a student who attended one of the early Zoo School programs from Sherwood Elementary sent us a donation and a story. She never planned to go to college, but her experiences at Zoo School motivated her to work hard, graduate high school and attend college. The lessons she learned in Zoo School motivated her to earn a teaching degree and return to the area. Now she spends her weekdays sharing Zoo stories with her students and weekends at the Zoo with her children and sharing meaningful experiences and encouraging others to get involved.
We are able to offer all of these wonderful programs thanks to the generous support of friends like you.
We know that when you support the Zoo through the Annual Fund, it is because you believe in the work we do in this community. Unlike the vast majority of zoos, we do not receive any public funds for operations. We either earn it or get it from you! For that, we thank you!
