FAQs

Welcome to Palm Beach Zoo! While you are creating priceless memories and spending time with your family in nature, here are some safety FAQs to keep in mind:

HOW IS THE ZOO REDUCING THE SPREAD OF COVID-19 AND KEEPING ME SAFE DURING MY VISIT? 

  • Our capacity is limited and carefully monitored to ensure physical distancing.
  • A one-way path is designated throughout the Zoo to allow room for social distancing.
  • Hand-sanitizer stations are available throughout the Zoo.
  • Guests of the Zoo are asked to refrain from visiting if they are in a high-risk or vulnerable category for COVID-19, are not feeling well or have a fever. 
  • Guests are encouraged to wear face coverings, utilize hand-sanitizing stations, and maintain a six-foot distance from other groups. In accordance with Palm Beach County orders: Facial coverings are required in indoor spaces and where social distancing is not possible. 
  • Additional sanitation of high-touch surfaces and restrooms will be performed throughout the day.
  • Touchless payment and online ticket purchase options are available. 
  • Zoo staff must wear face coverings and answer a health survey each day prior to reporting to work.

IF SOME ZOO AREAS AND SERVICES ARE UNAVAILABLE DUE TO COVID-19 PROTOCOLS, WHY AM I PAYING FULL TICKET PRICE?

  • For more than 50 years, Palm Beach Zoo continues to serve as a community resource. We are a nonprofit organization that relies on your visits to provide for the animals in our care and to help save wildlife in wild places. In addition to expert animal care and wellness, ticket revenue also helps cover additional cleaning and sanitation costs to keep all guests safe during a visit.  

A great way to save money is to become a Zoo Member.

  • For a family, two visits cover the cost of the membership. Plus you’ll receive discounts on food and beverage and members-only special events while supporting YOUR Zoo! 

CAN THE ZOO GUARANTEE I WILL NOT GET COVID-19 FROM MY VISIT?

  • The best way to reduce the spread of COVID-19 is to eliminate non-essential interaction with the public. Visiting any attraction with the general public carries an inherent risk. Guests voluntarily assume all risks associated with a visit. Safety is our top priority, and the Zoo put in place precautionary measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19, as listed above.

We thank you for your cooperation and support of Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society.
