Your Help is Needed!

The New Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo will expand from seven to 25 acres in its new location to house more than 600 animals. But it will also continue to retain the "Little Zoo That Could" intimacy that millions of visitors have always loved about our current zoo.

YOUR DONATION to the Build Your Zoo capital campaign brings us one step closer to a spectacular Little Zoo That Grew!

Our Priorities

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


The Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo is operated by The Zoo Foundation, Inc., a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization governed by a board of directors. Your donation is tax-deductible to the full extent permitted by law. Please consult with your tax advisor.
