We Share Our Joy of Nature to Help Wildlife and People Thrive

East Coast Zoological Society (ECZS)

Bold ideas. Innovative programs. A passion for improving our natural environment. These are the principles that steer the East Coast Zoological Society (ECZS) and our legacy of protecting wildlife and their habitats.

Three decades of Experience

Through volunteerism and community action, ECZS first built Brevard Zoo, reflecting the heart and soul of a community joining together to save wildlife. We have three decades of experience in answering the ecological challenges facing our community, including Indian River Lagoon restoration programs, sea turtle rehabilitation, and saving animals from extinction. Through this work, we are recognized for creating best practices in conservation, animal wellness, veterinary services and education.

Our Legacy Campaign

In addition to securing the future of Brevard Zoo, this campaign will plan for the next bold step – a second campus on the shores of the Banana River in Brevard County, FL addressing the vulnerability of Florida’s ecosystems. This historic campaign will fund a 14-acre, world-class, aquarium and conservation facility to combat the impacts to the Atlantic Ocean, the Indian River Lagoon and the St. John’s River.

World Class Aquarium and Conservation Campus

The aquarium will allow us to focus on the critical needs of our community, generate funding for Indian River Lagoon preservation, and educate half a million people per year on environmental action no matter where they live. Your support will help us conserve Florida’s treasured natural environment.
