Each year, attendees of our Safari Under the Stars have the opportunity to rally around a specific Zoo need. In the past, these projects have included creating our Exceptional Nature Space, expanding our jaguar habitat, building a home for rescued Florida black bears, establishing a breeding space for endangered Florida grasshopper sparrows and, most recently, installing cameras in our animal habitats.

This year, we’re asking for your help to purchase and replace scales to weigh our Zoo residents.
