The Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens will provide 250 free tickets to area non-profits that benefit underserved children. These free tickets will allow local children to visit the Zoo who would otherwise be unable to do so. We believe all children should have the opportunity to experience the wonder of seeing animals like tigers, elephants. and gorillas up-close. Zoo visits educate children about wildlife, conservation, and the natural world, and help inspire future generations to explore careers as vets, zoo keepers, conservation leaders, and many other professions. Our community supporters help us make these visits available each year. A few of the organizations that receive these tickets include Community Connections, MaliVai Washington Youth Foundation, and Education First.
