Previously known as Miami Metrozoo and Crandon Park Zoological Gardens, this collection offers a progressive chronology of the Zoo. Emphasis on the instrumental role played by benefactors, volunteers, zoo keepers and administrative staff is captured in the collection, from their early days in Key Biscayne, to their historic relocation to South Miami.
