Nashville Zoo At Grassmere
The opportunity to fulfill Nashville Zoo’s mission of inspiring a culture of understanding and discovery of our natural world through conservation, innovation and leadership has never been greater. Over 230,000 people were impacted by the Zoo's onsite programs, field trips and community outreach in 2015. The Zoo's education programs offer unique opportunities to connect people of all ages with animals from different parts of the world and educate them about their native habitats. Nashville Zoo is also actively involved in research, habitat protection, breeding programs and education initiatives around the globe as well as in its own backyard. The Zoo has been instrumental in the conservation and propagation of clouded leopards, giant anteaters, Eastern hellbenders and Puerto Rican crested toads. Already recognized for creating world-class habitats for many species and providing quality care for a valued animal collection, Nashville Zoo’s goal is to continue connecting Middle Tennesseans with the natural world, encouraging education, environmental literacy, conservation and advocacy.
