Community Outreach

Our Animal Ambassadors Out and About

Imagine your surprise when you're at one of Gulf Shores' most popular events, like The Hangout Music Festival, and also hangin' out is Magic, our 10-foot Yellow Anaconda…or how about if you're strolling through the public library and there's Norman, our Eurasian Eagle Owl perched on a pile of books.

Magic and Norman are just two of the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo's Community Outreach Animal Ambassadors, our special envoys who make appearances away from the zoo in order to help inspire learning about wildlife conservation, compassion for animals, and to spread a little love and laughter.

What We Do & Where

By going mobile with some of our most extroverted and easily transportable zoo animals, we are able to bring unique educational opportunities to a wide range of public and private venues.

Types of Community Outreach:

  • Schools & Libraries
  • Civic Functions & Ceremonies
  • Fundraisers & Charity Affairs
  • Corporate Events
  • Conferences
  • Festivals
  • Concerts and Sporting Events
  • Holiday Celebrations & Parades
  • Grand Openings
  • Private Parties

Our little embassy of animal ambassadors is chock full of charming and entertaining characters. Whether it’s Hugo the Bearded Dragon for a Chinese New Years celebration or our Eurasian lynx, Casanova strolling through a corporate charity event, when we are out and about, enchantment always follows.
