The Gulf Breeze Zoo is dedicated to wildlife conservation through public education, captive breeding programs, habitat preservation, and providing financial aid and assistance to projects in the wild.
We have provided aid – in the form of grants and ongoing programs, listed below – in more than 135 countries around the globe. Trying to solve the world's continually changing wildlife concerns, the Gulf Breeze Zoo collaborates with other zoos and field experts to support rhinoceros and elephant anti-poaching units, install artificial nest sites for wild penguins and translocate giraffes across the Nile to boost sustainable genetics. Conservation is important not just for the species in foreign countries but also for many of our local animal friends. Our goal is to assist in the conservation of local and national species by giving them as much attention as we do to the larger, more well-known species.
The Gulf Breeze Zoo is privately owned and receives zero tax dollars. Funding for conservation programs is made possible through the continued support of zoo guests. Conservation is fundamental in our daily operations, and visitors are encouraged to join us in making a difference on this journey.
