By Space Coast Daily // July 20, 2020
Brevard Zoo was only Florida zoo to make the list
BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Readers of USA Today’s 10Best website have selected Brevard Zoo as one of the top zoos in North America.
The Zoo, which came in fifth place overall, was the highest-ranked facility in the Southeastern United States and the only Florida zoo to make the list.
“Our Zoo isn’t as big as some of the others on the list, but what we lack in size, we make up for in immersive exhibits, one-of-a-kind animal experiences, and a commitment to wildlife locally and around the globe,” said Keith Winsten, the Zoo’s executive director.
“We are grateful to the readers of 10Best for their support, and we hope this draws more attention to Florida’s Space Coast.”
Brevard Zoo is a 75-acre nonprofit facility that is home to more than 900 animals representing more than 195 species from Florida, South America, Africa, Asia and Australia.
The zoo features animal feedings, kayak tours, behind-the-scenes tours, and a train ride, along with the attraction Treetop Trek.
“This is such an incredible honor for us to have one of our gems listed in a top 10 national poll like this,” said Peter Cranis, Executive Director of the Space Coast Office of Tourism.
“It is a testament to the vision and hard work the Zoo staff and community have put in to make our local Zoo truly one of the best in the country.”
