About Brevard Zoo
Connecting visitors to the natural world for over 20 years, Brevard Zoo is a leader in wildlife conservation on the Space Coast. Over 400,000 guests annually enjoy exhilarating wildlife adventures, intimate animal encounters, and valuable educational experiences.
It began as a small group of people with a big dream: building a zoo. A world-class zoo that would serve as a conservation hub where people could gather to learn about animals. A place to escape from the urban world and get closer to nature, to be reminded of the diversity of the life with which we share this planet. With the help of more than 16,000 volunteers the Zoo was truly built by the community.
Brevard Zoo opened in March, 1994, with only a few exhibits. Today, Brevard Zoo is a leading institution according to the Association of Zoos and Aquariums and one of the areas most treasured attractions.
