The Gulf Coast

Zoo Closed For Moving

September 30, 2019 in Gulf Shores , AL



The Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo's new location is the first U.S. zoo to be built from the ground up in more than 20 years. This modern entertainment and educational wildlife park will be spread out over 25 acres, just four miles north from the current zoo. It will have something for everyone, from hands-on educational animal encounters and our awe-inspiring Tiger Splash habitat to a skylift tour across the zoo and a safari jeep ride through the Aussie Outback. The new zoo will provide a much more spacious, protected and enriching environment for our beloved animals.
