Mission Statement

Zoo Miami and Zoo Miami Foundation's mission is to encourage an appreciation for the world's wildlife and to help conserve it for future generations.

Description

Zoo Miami Foundation is the non-profit support organization for Zoo Miami. Zoo Miami Foundation was founded in 1956 when the Zoo was located in Crandon Park at Key Biscayne. Starting in the mid-sixties, Zoo members spearheaded a campaign to include plans for a bigger, better zoo on the Miami-Dade County "Decade of Progress" bond issue. Voters approved the bond in 1972 and nine years later Zoo Miami opened its gates at its current location.

Today, Zoo Miami Foundati onis one of the largest membership organizations in South Florida. Its Board of Directors includes community leaders in Miami-Dade and Broward counties who are committed to the education, conservation and recreation goals of Zoo Miami. While Miami-Dade County operates and maintains the Zoo, Zoo Miami Foundation, backed by its strong membership, supports Zoo Miami's programs and enhancements.
