What You'll Get
ZooTampa's mission is "to connect people with the living earth." You'll do just that at this 56-acre zoo filled with naturalistic animal exhibits in a lush, tropical garden setting. This zoo offers popular educational programming and fun recreational amenities, for which it has won accolades as one of the country's most family-friendly zoos.
Operating in accordance with the highest professional standards of conservation, education, research and recreation, ZooTampa at Lowry Park serves as a resource for the community regarding conservation and environmental matters affecting animals and habitats, both locally and throughout the world.
You'll see endangered, threatened and vulnerable species from climates similar to that of the Tampa Bay region, with park areas devoted to Asia, Africa, Australia and Florida. Additional areas exhibit primates and birds. Exhibits balance support for the maximum well-being of the animals with the importance of the guest experience in relation to our mission. Keeper talks, animal encounters, behind-the-scene tours, and other special experiences expand the Zoo’s opportunities to promote a connection to the living earth.
