Washed Ashore | Now through May 8 | 10 am - 4:30 pm

Meet Chompers, a 10-foot shark, and Octavia, a 9-foot octopus, and then watch as giant anemone reef comes to life. We aren’t expanding our aquarium or getting new marine animals. These are just three of the 10 larger-than-life, handcrafted art sculptures coming to Brevard Zoo for a limited time, November 8, 2015-May 8, 2016. Washed Ashore Project features astonishing art installations made exclusively from marine debris that will open your eyes and leave you with a lasting impression. Presented by Bright House Networks. more…
