Roaring Into Our Future

Naples Zoo's $25 Million Capital Campaign and $5 Million Endowment Drive

For 97 years, this 43-acre zoo and garden in the heart of Naples has been a dynamic and evolving resource for the Southwest Florida community and visitors to the area. The Zoo is constantly changing and adapting, seeking innovative ways to connect people with animals and nature and to inspire them to help conserve and protect. On November 22, 2016, the Zoo announced plans to dramatically address the future of animal care and welfare, conservation, education and guest experiences through a $25 Million Capital Campaign and $5 Million Endowment Drive, Roaring Into Our Future. 

Naples Zoo is a historic Collier County Landmark in the heart of Naples and is dedicated to increasing the appreciation and conservation of wildlife and seeking ways to better serve and help educate the Southwest Florida community.

Roaring Into Our Future has three goals:

    1. To ensure the very best care possible for Naples Zoo’s growing animal collection through a new, on-site animal hospital. 
    2. To inspire stewards of all ages and help ensure a positive future for wildlife and wild places through a new education center an expanded education program portfolio. 
    3. To improve and enrich member and guest experiences through a new entrance/visitor center, new exhibits and a historic museum.
