Zoo Tampa

The zoo highlights endangered, threatened and vulnerable species from climates such as the Tampa Bay area, with parks in Asia, Africa, Australia and Florida. Our animal habitats balance the importance of supporting maximum animal welfare and engaging and inspiring our guests to protect and conserve wildlife. Chance animal encounters, behind-the-scenes tours and other special one-on-one experiences expand the zoo’s opportunities to create unforgettable nature connections.

Zoo now cares for more than 1000 animals. The zoo participates in nearly 100 AZA Endangered and Threatened Species Management Networks and has won numerous awards for its animal conservation and care programs. The zoo was officially recognized by the State of Florida as a Center for Biological Diversity and Conservation in 2004. It shows the most extensive species of endangered fauna in Florida. This is best seen in the work we do every day at the Jacarlene Animal Care Campus with the Tiedemann-Cotton Animal Care Annex and our Catherine Lowry Straz Veterinary Hospital, which has since been twice accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA ). will be opened in 2015. We are the only zoo in the United States to receive this honor. Tap into your wild side and make unforgettable connections at ZooTampa. Come face to face with an amazing wildlife.
