The Naples Zoo

Education is the heart of Naples Zoo’s mission, and the zoo provides an informative, educational and engaging family-oriented experience that inspires guests to respect and protect wildlife and nature. As we enter into a new era of global awareness and environmental stewardship, Naples Zoo is uniquely positioned to reach an increasing number of children and adults, helping to inspire them to value, respect and conserve the biodiversity of the planet. Naples Zoo has formal education partnerships with Collier County Public Schools, Lee County Public Schools and Lee County Public Library System. The zoo’s commitment to education is further demonstrated by its collaboration with the Florida Department of Education to develop programs that meet Florida’s Next Generation Sunshine State Standards. Grade-specific programming has been designed for students from pre-K through middle-schoolers, offering a variety of hands-on learning opportunities in biology, animal behavior, ecology and species and habitat conservation.
