Imagine standing eye level with a giraffe, holding out your arm for parrots to land on, or touching the head of an endangered rhino. At Zoo Miami, these experiences happen every day, fulfilling the institution's mission of encouraging the conservation of wildlife. More than 3,000 animals—from chimps to tigers—populate the African, Asian, and Australian lobes of the zoo. Many of the individual exhibitions don't use cages, but are instead bound by moats throughout more than three miles of walking trails. This setup allows guests to get closer to animals as they romp in their habitats. More than 1,200 plant species populate these habitats, which are re-creations of the animals' native environments.
Guests can use free WiFi to download a free mobile app for iPhones and Androids. The new and more user-friendly mobile app has GPS-enabled maps that show you where your favorite animal is and tells you about them. The photobooth feature has 4 different zoo-themed frames for photos that can be directly shared on social media. It also contains Zoo Miami's very own weather bug station for exact location weather readings.
