Miami Metro Zoo

Zoo Miami (also known as The Miami-Dade Zoological Park and Gardens) is the largest and oldest zoological garden in Florida, and the only tropical zoo in the continental United States.  The unique climate in South Florida allows us to keep a wide variety of animals from Asia, Australia and Africa, representing a broad mix of species that is unlike any other zoo in the country.  Our animals are grouped according to their geographic territories, with species that live together peacefully in the wild placed in exhibits together here at the zoo. Our trees, foliage and even our soil are matched as closely as possible to the native habitats of our animals.

Wertheim Conservatory

The Conservatory was the vision of Herbert and Nicole Wertheim, who donated funds for the construction of the Conservatory and the Auditorium in 1990. State funds matched the donation, and construction started in 1991 and was performed by the National Greenhouse Company, Atlanta, Georgia. The glasshouse was nearly complete in August 1992 when it was destroyed by Hurricane Andrew. It was rebuilt in 1993, after which it was used for research space until a curator position was funded and an interior design contractor found. Planting and interior design was initiated in fall 1996 by Bruce Morgan. The initial planting was completed in January 1997. The Conservatory was formally dedicated in April 1997 by Sir Gillian Prance, then director of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew (UK).
