Welcome to the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo, Home of Animal Planet's The Little Zoo That Could

Put a Smile on an Animal's (and a Keeper's) Face!

You'd be suprised at how creative we can be when it comes to providing enrichment to our animals! Toddler toys, cardboard boxes, ropes, perfume, and christmas trees provide much needed stimulation to our residents here. We'll gladly take that Christmas tree off your hands for our livestock and you can always pass on those undesirable perfumes to make a big cat or wolf’s day here at the zoo.

So, we've put together wish lists for each group we have here at the zoo. Take a look and pick out something special for your favorite Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo resident! We'll take gently used items off your hands or brand new items, or gift cards that you can pick up while you're doing your holiday shopping!

From frozen chicken to sardines or toddler toys to silk greenery, the animals’ requests might deviate from the normal Christmas stocking stuffers but the donation of these items will help our zoo offset operation costs as it builds its new zoo facility, and provide fresh, stimulating habitats for our animals. You can stop by the gift shop at Gulf Shores zoo, and select a specific animal from the tree on display or items can be shipped to us at: 1204 Gulf Shores Parkway, Gulf Shores, AL 36542.
