Wildlife Conservation through Education
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Want to come play with me? No, you can’t get in the mud with our Visayan warty pigs, which are a critically endangered species, but you can learn all about them when you visit the Brevard Zoo this weekend from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. today, Saturday and Sunday.
Our mission is Wildlife Conservation through Education and Participation, and while you can’t get in the mud this weekend with our Visayan Warty Pigs, you can participate in games and learn about endangered species as we highlight Endangered Species.
Visayan warty pigs are just one of the many endangered species we will highlight. These pigs are native to the West Visayan Islands of the central Philippines and have become extinct from three of the six islands. Visayan Warty Pig’s populations have declined due to over-hunting, habitat loss and hybridization.
