In 1989, The Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo opened as Zooland Animal park. The zoo is located about a mile from the beach on Hwy 59. There is a reptile house, petting zoo and aviary on site and daily animal shows are given during the summer. Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo is home to Lions, Macaws, Tigers, Bears, Monkeys and more. The zoo relies completely on admissions, memberships and contributions in order to remain open and functional. Being on the Gulf Coast and so close to the beach has presented the zoo with some unique challenges during hurricane season, about which Animal Planet filmed a 13 part series called "The Little Zoo That Could". The devotion of the zoo staff is inspiring and it is obvious that they consider the nearly 300 animals that depend on them to be family. Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo is open every day except Thanksgiving and New Year's Day and makes fun day trip for the family.

The Zoo is located at 1204 Gulf Shores Parkway (Hwy 59) in Gulf Shores (Behind Zooland Miniature Golf)

For General Information you can call 251-968-5732.


Exciting News for the Zoo!!!

Twenty-five acres of land have been donated to the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo by Clyde Weir and his daughter Andrea Weir Franklin. This property, valued at several million dollars, will allow the zoo to sit on higher ground that is safe from flooding. Building is expected to begin in 2007 and the new location will be on County Road 6, which is approximately 2 miles north of the Intercoastal Waterway Bridge.

With the airing of the series "Little Zoo That Could" has come an overwhelming response to the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo's need for help. Between the cost of repairs and the loss of gate receipts and merchandise sales following the hurricanes, the zoo ended up highly in debt. Another effect the Animal Planet series has had is that the visitors themselves are interacting more with one another concerning things they saw on the shows.
