Bringing lions to Brevard Zoo required the time, resources and cooperation of both our Zoo team as well as Naples Zoo, the facility that cared for the boys from birth. Read on to learn all about the work that went into bringing them to our Zoo.
Bringing in a new species, especially one as complex as lions, is not easy. Our Zoo staff worked hard to build a habitat that encouraged their natural behaviors while also keeping the lions and their animal care team safe.
The three lion brothers have arrived! Our animal care team is working hard to ensure the trio’s comfort. If all continues to go well, they will officially be visible to the public on Sunday, May 1 in their habitat in our Wild Florida loop.
Partnering with Lion Landscapes allows us to help lions in their natural range while also following our mission to share our joy of nature to help wildlife and people thrive.
Two cat-centric projects are well underway in the Wild Florida section of the Zoo.
