BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Brevard Zoo guests will soon be able to view not only live animals, but also metal ones hailing from Africa. 

The 16-piece collection, dubbed “Sculpture Safari,” will be scattered around Zoo grounds.

The menagerie was created by the Ark Collective—a group of 19 young artists in Nairobi, Kenya who were recruited from disadvantaged, impoverished backgrounds.

Learning valuable skills such as design, metal cutting and welding provides these individuals with expanded employment opportunities and the ability to positively influence their communities.

The life-size giraffe, elephants, lions, peacocks and other creatures were made from reclaimed materials discarded from the automotive industry and other sources. (Brevard Zoo image)
