Dreams Come True At ZWF!

Dreams do come true at ZWF! Debbie’s dream was to one day hold and cuddle a Tiger Cub in her arms, and her experience at ZWF gave her the opportunity to do that and more! Debbie visited us in early June and was able to meet some of our animal ambassadors, one of them being Himesh, our baby Tiger Cub. In the photo shown above, you can see just how much Debbie truly enjoyed her experience here! Thank you for visiting us and we hope you may keep us in mind for a future visit!

Daily Tours


A few tour guests had the rare opportunity to meet Judy the Elephant during their visit to ZWF Miami. The magnificent Judy, and a few of our guests are pictured above, posing during their private Elephant Encounter at Zoological Wildlife Foundation in June. We had Judy visit us for a short period of time as a meet and greet for our guests and to learn some amazing information about her! Did you know? The Asian Elephant is considered endangered on the Red List. Its population is believed to be on a downward trend. It is important that we continue to educate our youth on the important role animals play on earth and how their preservation and existence is crucial to us.

Carolina and Margaux the Capuchin Monkey, made a very special surprise visit! Below is an email that we received following the visit:

“Yesterday we celebrated my mother’s 90th birthday with a surprise visit with one of your Capuchin monkeys. She was elated!  “Margot” came with Carolina and were a huge success. It was a dream come true for my mother.  I am sending you a picture of her so you can see the joy in her face.  We were so please with professional your organization is. We loved how caring and playful Carolina was. Just wanted to let you know how thoroughly satisfied we are!”

Thank you Vivian for having our staff and animal ambassador visit you, we are glad you enjoyed their company and hope to see you again!


Behind The Scenes


In the photo above, Andrea was about to bathe Sabrina the Snow Leopard! Miami afternoons tend to get a bit hot, so our handlers like to make sure each of our animals are comfortable in this heat, most domestic cat owners dread the thought of giving their beloved feline a bath, however, bathing Sabrina was quite a simple task as she enjoyed the water running down her fur and even decided to play in the water afterwards! Our Snow Leopards live in a special enclosure which also has a ventilated area and fan so they constantly stay cool! Our handlers are constantly providing care and attention to all the animals at ZWF as this is something they are all truly passionate about.

Daily Tours


We recently had visitors from the Diagnostic Center For Women, at our facility. Cuddling with a baby Tiger Cub, getting licked by a sweet Tamandua, howling with a baby Wolf, were just some of the activities they experienced on their visit! Our foundation is home to some special animals and knowledgeable staff. We open our doors to you and invite you to take a tour and learn about our amazing animal ambassadors while meeting them up close!
