Our Zoo To You program brings the zoo experience to communities locally and nationally, traveling within Miami-Dade and Broward or broadcasting virtually. We bring the fun of Zoo Miami to various groups, whether they are a camp, classroom, library, or other organizations.

Presented by the José Milton Foundation, Zoo Miami’s Animal Fun Factory is a one-of-a-kind interactive exhibit where zoo visitors can learn about animal welfare and environmental conservation. Enrichment is used to promote the natural behavior of the animals at Zoo Miami. Visitors are guided by zoo educators to learn all about the enrichment items that provide this physical and mental exercise for Zoo Miami’s animal residents.

This program is available to individuals who want to be a part of a zoological organization that seeks to connect guests to wildlife, providing the opportunity for guests to care and support conservation. Adult volunteers play an important role in customer service, creating engaging guest experiences, and supporting zoo staff. Volunteers must commit to providing 70 hours of annual volunteer service.

The Conservation Teen Scientist program (CTS) is an opportunity for 9th-12th graders to join our zoo team to develop critical life skills (public speaking, collaboration skills, etc.) and increase their knowledge in the arena of environmental sciences. They interpret at exhibits to connect guests to our mission while assisting with customer service and events. As part of the program they get the opportunity to network with various professionals at Zoo Miami, go on field trips, and receive community service hours. The program is a yearly commitment with 15 days over the summer and 2 days per month during the school year.

Training workshops for local community members to host community events centered on green and conservation initiatives. The goal is to engage families as agents of change in their communities, with the intent of authentically growing our conservation capacity and reaching audiences we hadn’t previously. Aim is to increase the spread of Zoo Miami’s mission throughout the local community and increase representation in communities underrepresented.
