The mission statement of the Naples Zoo is simple: “To inspire people of all ages to respect, value and help conserve wildlife and our natural world.” First established in 1919, it expanded over the years and became known as Caribbean Gardens in 1954. The zoo contains more than 70 different species, with the exotic animals surrounded by the mature trees and plants of a historic tropical garden. There are botanical exhibits as well as animals exhibits, and the wildlife is surrounded by trees and landscaping that have been in place for decades.

The winning bidder’s party of eight will get to experience many different facets of the zoo that are not available to the general public. They’ll receive a night tour of the zoo with night vision goggles, a close-up animal encounter and a membership for each couple. They’ll get to attend ZOObilee, the annual fundraiser, and enjoy cuisine from Naples restaurants and caterers while exploring the botanical gardens. And they’ll have a private dinner at the zoo with president and CEO Jack Mulvena, a national conservation leader with a special focus on education and motivating young people to get involved in wildlife conservation.

Zoo memberships expire one (1) calendar year from activation date. The VIP Zoobilee tickets are only valid for the event occurring on February 7, 2020.
