On Saturday, October 1 from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm at the Zoo entrance, we’re kick-starting our fundraiser with a party for the whole family! This FREE event will benefit the expansion of the new Manatee Critical Care Center. Don’t miss a second of the fun with food trucks, games, a DJ and more! You'll even have the opportunity to immerse yourself in a 3D walkthrough of the new space.
The new first-impression habitat will solidify the Zoo's identity as a leader in Florida wildlife conservation and animal wellness, as the state's most beloved and charismatic species will greet guests from their new exhibit, paying homage to the vibrant life surrounding us all.
