In late 2016, visitors to Zoo Miami will get the opportunity to explore our newest exhibit, Florida: Mission Everglades. This exciting and unique exhibit will feature state-of-the-art interaction and informative displays about the significant animals found in South Florida. Florida: Mission Everglades will take children and adults alike into the different habitats found in the heart of Florida. Come face-to-face with a ferocious bear as you explore hammocks and pinelands, and slide through the water where river otters play. Experience alligators and crocodiles in a new way as you wander over a rickety bridge and an acrylic underwater tube. These exhibits come together to help visitors understand Zoo Miami’s collective mission of trying to save the Florida Everglades. This one-of-a-kinds exhibit is rivaled only by an actual trip to the Everglades. The fascinating displays and exciting up-close encounters encourage visitors to head for the Everglades, and perhaps even commit to keeping it safe.
