Great job! Can't wait to see how this place grows and develops :-) I plan on bringing a group of homeschoolers for your education program Cassie told us about.

I guess they're providing an education to those individuals who wish to work with animals, but the facilities are not are of a standard that they should be inviting the public to view them. They were clean and certainly well treated, but not arranged for viewing.

Advdertise more in the Villages for the grandparents to bring the grand kids to your zoo. I was not aware of it until I saw it on Groupon.

Signage at the entrance to the road could have the milage on it because the GPS won't go far enough.

It was a nice experience but, not worth the drive from Orlando. Spent more time in the car than at the "zoo."

This is a pleasant change from the "Theme Park " circuit. It is tucked away in a rural area of central Florida. We were assigned 2 teaching guides who were very knowlegable and attentive to our 2 granddaughters, age 10 and 7. It is a small facility but diverse in it's animal population, and trying to expand. Nice way to spend an afternoon.

From Our Editors

Dedicated to responsible public education and the conservation of endangered and rare animals, the staffers of the Florida International Teaching Zoo tend to a diverse collection of living beings while teaching students to do the same. Amid the rustling feathers of Lady Amherst pheasants and the uncontrollable laughter of spotted hyenas reading the works of Oscar Wilde aloud, the school’s pupils spend days practicing their cage-side manner and stockpiling wildlife know-how through classes and conservation projects around the globe. To round out their tuition, students helm zoo tours for visitors four days a week, practicing their newly minted public-management skills and granting guests a chance to take in the wonders of the natural world in an intimate setting.
