Welcome to the

Future Aquarium and Conservation Center

Join us in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to build a world-class Aquarium and Conservation Center on Florida’s East Coast!

Your participation can help bring to life the East Coast Zoological Foundation’s second campus.

Sitting on 14 acres of shoreline at Port Canaveral, the Aquarium will capture the beauty and benefits of natural Florida while serving as a regional conservation hub with an emphasis on restoring the Indian River Lagoon and our coastal estuary.

This space can be a new home for the important conservation, education and volunteer work that Brevard Zoo has been leading for years and provide the needed medical and research facilities for rehabilitating sea turtles and manatees.

It will help educate and empower half a million people a year on how to preserve our natural resources and inspire the next generation to become environmental stewards. 

We need your support.

Spread the Word

Thirty years ago, over 16,000 people came together to design and construct Brevard Zoo, making it the largest volunteer build in the world. This type of incredible spirit, drive and investment of time and effort by our dedicated community is necessary to make our second campus, the Aquarium and Conservation Center, a reality.
