Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens

The Naples Zoo is a 43-acre zoo and historic botanical garden. The first plantings were done by botanist and ornithologist Dr. Henry Nehrling in 1919. The gardens were neglected after Nehrling's death in 1929
Naples Zoo is excited to share the launch of the Diversity, Equity, Access, and Inclusion (DEAI) Committee to create positive change and build a more inclusive culture at the Zoo and in our community! DEAI initiative was set forth by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) in 2020 as a fifth promise to their strategic plan

. We believe that these qualities foster valuable talents, perspectives, and personality traits that make our Zoo a stronger, more welcoming organization. Additionally, AZA updated an existing accreditation standard to help strengthen their commitment to DEAI goals and initiatives. To learn more about AZA’s position, promise, and statement, please visit . We look forward to hosting DEIA celebrations in the future. To learn more about Naples Pride, please visit
