Reservations will open up in mid-December

From the prairies of Big Cypress National Preserve to the rainforests of Madagascar, Naples Zoo and its staff engage in long-term efforts to conserve rare plants and animals. To better connect zoo members and visitors with these projects, the zoo welcomes researchers, directors, and biologists to present their work at the Conservation Lecture Series offered in the evenings during the winter months. Along with seeing a formal presentation in the Safari Canyon theater, guests mingle with these experts and ask questions to better understand the complexities of conservation and how each of us can contribute to making our world a better place for wildlife and people.
