You Can Help Support Conservation 

One tree is planted for each student who visits!
When you take a field trip to Naples Zoo, you're planting trees and changing lives! Naples Zoo plants one tree for each student visiting on a field trip through Trees for the Future. Naples Zoo has planted well over half a million trees through this organization. Watch this video to learn more. Click here to view their documentary.
