Your story is important to us. Brevard Zoo was built by the community and continues to thrive thanks to the support of thousands of patrons, volunteers, donors and businesses. Below are some of their stories.

Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus at Brevard Zoo with the Fitchpatrick family

We’ve been coming to the zoo since the beginning! My boys are 12 and 24 now and we still love going. I chose our 2015 Christmas picture to share.

My toddler and I had our first experience feeding giraffes together at Brevard Zoo, now we can’t leave without doing it every trip! We love giraffes!

Absolutely loved coming to The Brevard Zoo with my 34 year old Son. I’ll be back with my 36 year old Niece next week. We all felt like kids again!

zoo animal keepers training giraffe

I absolutely love spending time at Brevard Zoo! One of the best days was when I witnessed giraffes in training. I was amazed at how each one knew their personal shape on a stick and responded to it.

Andy Arbuckle one of Brevard Zoo's original docent

My Dad (Andy) absolutely loved being a Docent there. He and My Mom (Marilyn) both worked on some of the original artwork/signage installed throughout the Zoo.

Looking forward to our next 30 years

As we look towards our future and what the next 30 years might look like, we wanted to make sure you knew about the transformative project we are working on through Our Legacy Campaign to build a future Aquarium and Conservation Center in Port Canaveral, Florida. This second campus will be an expansion of the work we do at Brevard Zoo and so much more. With your support, we can continue to ensure a future for wildlife and the health of our planet.
