Zoo Miami’s Conservation Action Center (CAC), presented by the Marc and Robin Osheroff Family opens January 16-17, 2021. The center is an immersive, interactive exhibition experience that introduces guests to conservation stories, both globally and locally. Guests will be able to learn what they have in common with a polar bear and crawl through a larger than life python while learning about the impacts of invasive species. Visitors will see how fast they can scoop the “poop” into compost bins in “What’s the Poop?” and whack out environmental threats in “Habitat Whack-A-Mole.” They will touch a “robo-frog” and see how they help save frogs in the Amazon! They’ll explore the “Finding a Shared Habitat” house to see how their everyday actions at home impact their ecosystem and experience how environments come to life as they pledge to take action on behalf of wildlife. The Conservation Action Center tells powerful and personal stories of animals and people alike. Guests will discover their connections to conservation and see how they are helping to save species!
“Human kindness is not an endangered species.” This inspirational message above the entry of Zoo Miami’s new Conservation Action Center sets the tone for what visitors can expect from this one-of-a-kind interpretive exhibit.
