Humans have much to learn from our wild-animal brethren, such as the alligator’s stoic patience to the malaysian tiger’s commanding boardroom presence. Secure a year’s supply of education for your knowledge-hungry herd with today’s Groupon: for $69, you get a one-year family membership to Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens (a $79.95 value for Collier County residents and a $159 value for other buyers).
A nationally accredited zoo that showcases a historic botanical garden and a cornucopia of exotic animals, Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens brings families face to face with four-legged friends through a diverse array of exhibits and shows. Three or four steps and a sturdy glass wall are often all that separate guests from ferocious tigers, bears, ocelots, and other fascinating fauna lurking behind tropical trees that were planted as early as 1919. Exciting presentations by local biologists and wildlife ecologists occur throughout each day, while lemurs hold hourly staring competitions and screeching monkeys grace audiences with frequent a cappella performances. Shows held daily in the Safari Canyon theater feature live videos of the animals with zoo professionals providing enlightened commentary. A Primate Expedition Cruise takes guests on an educational waterborne safari past islands of monkeys and planets of apes, where Charlton Heston howls for help from the shore.
The yearlong family membership includes admission for up to two adults in the same household and free admission for any children as old as 21. In line with the zoo’s relentless conservation efforts, an international organization will plant 10 trees in your family’s honor in Africa, Asia, Atlantis, or the Americas.
