How to Move a Lion

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.

Getting Ready for Lions

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.
