The Palm Beach Zoo is expanding its current service person admission policy to include all ‘service’ men and women this Memorial Day Weekend.

All police officers, firemen, and EMTs will be admitted free of charge this Memorial Day Weekend – Saturday, Sunday and Monday, May 25 - 27, with proper identification. Questions regarding the 2013 Memorial Day Weekend admission policy may be directed to the Zoo’s Marketing Office via email at info@palmbeachzoo.org or by calling the Zoo’s main switchboard at (561) 547-WILD (9453).

World Ocean's Day

Date: June 8, 2013 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM
OK, so we don’t have sea turtles, sharks, grouper, and the like in the Zoo! But we still care immensely about their survival and their habitat and we hope you do, too! For World Oceans Day we’re hosting representatives from Gumbo Limbo Nature Center, Palm Beach County Reef Research Team, Reef Rescue, Sea Turtle Conservation League of Singer Island, Florida Hawksbill Project at the Palm Beach Zoo, and other great organizations to help show you how you can protect these precious resources. We’ll also have interesting multi-media presentations in the special events pavilion including Jim Abernathy’s “This Is Your Ocean: Sharks” and more! Look for area dive shops, boat and kayak rental companies, professional underwater photographers along with other ocean and coastal related businesses in the Fountain Plaza through out the day.
