Montgomery Zoo & Mann Wildlife Learning Museum
If you have not been to the Zoo for a while, you’re missing out the educational and fun-packed adventure. The residents in the zoo include over five hundred animals from 5 different continents, all housed in barrier-free, natural habitats. Montgomery Zoo and Mann Wildlife Learning Museum also spans over forty beautifully landscape acres, providing you a magnificent view of endangered and exotic wildlife species. With a ride on miniature train or leisurely stroll, this zoo is no doubt a sight to see.
From the amazing habitats of new African elephants to zebras and lions, Montgomery Zoo and Mann Wildlife Learning Museum is a place where you always want to be, especially if you are an animal lover and want to know more about the Animal Kingdom. The best thing it is that there are several things on this zoo that you won’t experience with some. One of these is its Overlook Café, which is surrounded by animals, providing a unique view.

The Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo,
The Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo opened in June 1989 as Zooland Animal Park. The zoo was founded as a private enterprise by Joey Ward of Gulf Shores. In 1991, the Ward family created the Zoo Foundation, Inc., a non-profit corporation, and donated the 17 acres of prime real estate that makes up the zoo today. Three years later, the Ward family and the Erie Meyer Foundation graciously donated an additional 13 acres, which are still undeveloped.
Wide pathways throughout the park offer close up views of over 500 exotic animals including: lions, tigers, bears, primates, leopards, wolves, and more! Visit the reptile house, petting zoo, and aviary. There is a shaded picnic area, gift shop and seasonal concessions. We are open year round with seasonal animal encounters, animal shows and keeper talks.
The Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo relies solely on admissions, memberships and contributions to remain in business. The local community and businesses have been generous in donating money, building supplies and services in years past. Substantial on-going funding through sponsorships, grants, and endowments from major corporations did not exist before 1998. These additional sources of revenue are now being actively pursued to ensure the zoo’s longevity.
