Conservation & Research

Conservation & Research

ZooTampa houses more than 100 species in danger of going extinct in our, or our children’s, lifetime. The Zoo is designated a state center for species conservation and biodiversity and treats several threatened and endangered Florida wildlife species, including Florida panthers and critically endangered Key Deer. One of our most successful conservation programs is the David A. Straz, Jr. Manatee Critical Care Center, the first non-profit manatee hospital in the world. Here, our veterinary and animal care teams treat sick, injured and orphaned manatees. To date, we have been able to successfully release more than 250 manatees back into the wild.
