Our animal care team takes a special training course in order to learn how to do hoof trims on animal residents like our giraffe!
Our 25-year-old giraffe Rafiki is experiencing some health issues. We’re hopeful that our innovative care will help him continue to age comfortably with us.
We believe meaningful choices and control is essential to our animal resident’s wellbeing. Learn more about how we provide this to them!
This week, we’re putting the spotlight on the incredible animal care staff at Brevard Zoo. Read on to learn about our Africa team!

How do you weigh a giraffe? What do you feed a black howler monkey? You can ask these questions and more at two of our newest “chats” – Zoo Vet: Ask me Anything! and Zoo Chef: Eat Like an Animal.
Iggy is modeling a pair of polyurethane “shoes” to help her recover from an injury.
Farrier Steve Foxworth paid the Zoo a visit to help our staff improve their hoof-trimming techniques.
