About Sarasota Jungle Gardens
Sarasota Jungle Gardens features acres of lush tropical vegetation, winding jungle trails and entertaining, educational bird and reptile shows throughout the day. Established in 1939, Sarasota Jungle Gardens is home to native and exotic animals, including birds of prey, many different species of parrots and macaws, free-roaming flamingos, primates, small mammals, dozens of snakes, lizards, iguanas, crocodiles and other reptiles. Visitors have a unique opportunity to interact with and experience the animals, many of which found their home at Sarasota Jungle Gardens through approved private donations or through state and federal agencies that wanted to ensure these animals would live in a safe environment and permanent, caring home. All revenue goes directly to the care and enrichment of the resident animals.
