As we approach the end of the year, we want to thank each one of you for being part of our family at ZooTampa at Lowry Park. As cherished donors, partners, members and friends we appreciate your continued support and partnership in our mission to protect and preserve wildlife while inspiring our guests through education and entertainment.
2018 was an exciting year! We debuted a refreshed, modern identity and opened the first part of the Florida realm expansion with the addition of the new water experience, Roaring Springs presented by Pinch A Penny. We also welcomed new Zoo babies, including red wolves, African painted dogs, Fiji banded iguanas and a Southern white rhino– all species on the brink of extinction.
We continued to be champions for the state’s key species including Florida panthers, Indigo snakes, black bears and manatees. Thanks to your continued support, ZooTampa remains an international leader in animal conservation, rescue, rehabilitation and protection. We are proud of our dedicated team who care for more than 1,300 animals and create memorable experiences for everyone who visits the Zoo.
As you ring in the new year, please consider giving a gift to support conservation. Critically endangered Florida species need our help and every donation makes a difference. We know you will be proud with what we accomplish together!
