Changing Minds by Touching Hearts
The Alabama Safari Park is dedicated to wildlife conservation through public education, captive breeding programs, habitat preservation and providing financial aid and assistance to projects in the field. Alabama Safari Park is one of three zoological facilities operated by the Zoofari Parks Corporation. Working in conjunction with the Gulf Breeze Zoo and the Virginia Safari Park, we provide aid to over 130 countries around the world.
In an effort to solve the world’s continually changing wildlife concerns, the Alabama Safari Park collaborates with other zoos and field experts to support rhinoceros and elephant anti-poaching units, install artificial nest sites for wild penguins and translocate giraffes across the Nile to boost sustainable genetics.
Conservation is important not just for the species in foreign countries but also for many of our local animal friends. Our goal is to assist in the conservation of local and national species by giving them as much attention as we do to the larger, more well-known species.
The Alabama Safari Park is privately owned and receives no state or federal tax support. Funding for conservation programs is made possible through the continued support of zoo guests. Conservation is fundamental in our daily operations and visitors are encouraged to join us in making a difference on this journey.
