The list below does not include several private facilities that aren’t open to the public, but how many other zoos am I missing? There are several nature centers with very small animal collections but are they worth visiting? Are there some natural history museums with significant animal collections that could qualify as a "zoo"? I already posted a comprehensive list of Texas zoos and ended up with around 50, as well as a list of 60 California zoos. Florida has at least 60 zoos but the leader of the three huge states in terms of AZA-accredited zoos is clearly California. Texas: 50 zoos and 16 are AZA-accredited. Florida: 60 zoos and 16 are AZA-accredited. California: 60 zoos and 23 are AZA-accredited. 61 Florida Zoos: Audubon Center for Birds of Prey (Maitland) Back to Nature Wildlife Refuge (Orlando) Big Cat Rescue (Tampa) Brevard Zoo (Melbourne)* Busch Gardens Tampa Bay (Tampa)* Busch Wildlife Sanctuary (Jupiter) Butterfly World (Coconut Creek) Central Florida Zoo (Sanford)* Clearwater Marine Aquarium (Clearwater) Dade City’s Wild Things (Dade City) Discovery Cove (Orlando) Disney’s Animal Kingdom (Lake Buena Vista)* Dolphin Connection (Duck Key) Dolphin Rescue Center (Grassy Key) Dolphins Plus (Key Largo) Everglades Alligator Farm (Homestead) Everglades Safari Park (Miami) Flamingo Gardens (Davie) Florida Aquarium (Tampa)* Florida Oceanographic Coastal Center (Stuart) Gatorama (Palmdale) Gatorland (Orlando) Giraffe Ranch (Dade City) Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park (Fort Walton Beach) Gulf Breeze Zoo (Gulf Breeze) Gulf World Marine Park (Panama City Beach) Gumbo Limbo Nature Center (Boca Raton) Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park (Homosassa) Jacksonville Zoo (Jacksonville)* Jungle Adventures (Christmas) Jungle Island (Miami) Key West Aquarium (Key West) Key West Butterfly & Nature Conservatory (Key West) Lion Country Safari (Loxahatchee)* Loggerhead Marinelife Center (Juno Beach) Marineland Dolphin Adventure (St. Augustine) Marine Science Center (Ponce Inlet) Miami Seaquarium (Virginia Key) Monkey Jungle (Miami) Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium (Sarasota)* Naples Zoo (Naples)* Palm Beach Zoo (West Palm Beach)* Safari Wilderness (Lakeland) Santa Fe College Teaching Zoo (Gainesville)* Sarasota Jungle Gardens (Sarasota) Sasquatch Zoo (Crestview) SeaWorld Orlando (Orlando)* Shell Factory & Nature Park (North Fort Myers) Silver Springs Nature Park (Silver Springs) Smithsonian Marine Station at Fort Pierce (Fort Pierce) St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park (St. Augustine)* Tallahassee Museum (Tallahassee) Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo (Tampa)* Tarpon Springs Aquarium (Tarpon Springs) Theater of the Sea (Islamorada) The Seas (Lake Buena Vista)* Tree Hill Nature Center (Jacksonville) White Oak Conservation Center (Yulee) Wooten’s Animal Sanctuary (Ochopee) Zoo Miami (Miami)* ZooWorld (Panama City Beach) * 16 zoos in Florida are AZA-accredited.
