Jaguar Society

Jaguar Society logo


As of April 1, 2023, our Jaguar Society has a new structure, which we hope will bring even more benefits and impact to our members! Read on to see the updates. 

Jaguar Society was established to recognize, engage and appreciate the Zoo’s most dedicated and visionary supporters. Its members are a group of individuals who are true partners in helping forge the Zoo’s future. As an integral part of our team, they play a critical role in helping ensure the vitality, excellence and progress of the Zoo. The Society provides an opportunity for these like-minded special friends of the Zoo to effectively participate in the planning and execution of key programs and achievement of goals, while demonstrating a true legacy of leadership for our community. Jaguar Society members hold a special status within our family with the opportunity to be intimately and actively involved in the roll-out of new programs, projects and exhibits and the assessment of long-term goals and accomplishment of strategic initiatives that continue to make Brevard Zoo a jewel within our community, county and state.

As a Jaguar Society member, your support furthers our work in conservation (local and worldwide), our commitment to animal wellness and our dedication to education.



By becoming a member of Jaguar Society, you are contributing to the creation of new exhibits, educational experiences and supporting critical conservation efforts.
