Filming & Photography Guidelines

The Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society welcomes visitors who wish to photograph on Zoo grounds. All images made for personal enjoyment (non-profit making) are allowed free of charge.

All photographs should be taken from designated visitor viewing areas, or within the boundaries as it relates to special programs, engagements, etc. and the Zoo has the right to withhold or withdraw consent to photograph and video or to reproduce photographs or video of the Zoo, which includes zoo exhibits, animals, and buildings or otherwise defined. For guest and animal safety, photographic equipment (lenses, tripods, selfie sticks, etc.) cannot break the plane of any public fences/barricades.

While shooting, consideration must be given to other visitors, so the view of the animals and exhibits is not obstructed. Students who are using the Zoo for a school assignment will need to contact Media & Public Relations Manager, Naki Carter at ncarter@palmbeachzoo.org to discuss whether staff assistance is required. These requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis, and a fee may be required depending on the level of Zoo involvement.
