Your Help is still Needed!

The New Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo has expanded from seven to 25 acres in its new location to house more than 400 animals. But has continued to retain the "Little Zoo That Could" intimacy that millions of visitors have always loved about our old zoo.

YOUR DONATION to the Build Your Zoo capital campaign help support a spectacular Little Zoo That Grew!

Our Priorities

Priority Number One was to build a new, modern facility - safe from hurricanes and flooding - that also provides a more green, lush and enriching environment for all of our inhabitants.

Priority Number Two was to create a unique Little Zoo That Grew adventure that offers inspiring, educational and entertaining up-close animal experiences for zoogoers of all ages.
