Animal Wellness

Every plant and animal species we share our home with is worth protecting because each contributes to the health of the ecosystems we depend upon.

Kangaroo and keeper

Our keepers take great pride in their work to address the physical, mental and social needs of their animals. Coupled with our dedicated veterinary staff focusing on nutritional and medical care, the Zoo ensures that all 900+ animals at our facility receive the most thorough and top-notch attention possible.

Brevard Zoo is heavily involved in local conservation programs by facilitating and supporting efforts to protect sea turtles, Florida scrub-jays, mangroves and oysters, just to name a few. Plus, your Zoo is part of a much larger picture. As an accredited institution, we are one of 230 taking part in the AZA iniative, SAFE (Saving Animals from Extinction).


Experiences & Encounters


Choose from a variety of individual experiences. Some experiences like the train and our kayaks can take you to a new, up-close view of some of our residents in Expedition Africa. Others like feeding giraffe, lorikeets or cockatiels helps our keepers and gives our residents a bit of entertainment.

View Adventures
