Daily Adventures

Brevard Zoo offers various activities like kayaking, riding the train and animal encounters. Animal demonstrations such as our alligator, dingo and vultures rotate depending on the day of the week. In Florida, thunderstorms with lightning happen regularly. For the safety of our guests, the Zoo stops certain activities when thunder is heard. Our rule of thumb is to wait 30 minutes after the last clap of thunder before resuming kayaking, treetop trek, paddle boats, and Paws On water play activities.
