Zoo Miami Collection, 1967-2017, bulk 1980-2006

12.00 boxes
Miami-Dade Zoological Park and Gardens, colloquially known as Zoo Miami, is the largest and oldest zoological park in the state of Florida. The zoo is the only zoological garden in the continental United States with a tropical climate, which allows it to house a large array of animals from different continents. 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. The collection is comprised of newsletters, ephemeral objects, promotional materials, and photographic materials
