You're Saving Wildlife & Planting Trees
When you have an event with us, you're supporting the overall conservation and education mission of the nonprofit zoo and botanical garden. We also plant 500 trees in Forest Gardens through Trees for the Future for each event. These trees are planted in a Forest Garden in Africa which helps restore degraded lands, combats water scarcity, and decreases habitat loss for wildlife. And a Forest Garden typically quadruples a family's income within four years. By addressing poverty, the Forest Garden helps prevent people from choosing to do illegal activities that impact wildlife in order to feed their family. Naples Zoo has planted well over half a milion trees through this organization. Watch these videos: 2 Minute Overview19 minute documentary.

Thank you for helping us make a better world for people and wildlife.
