Bouncing Back and Better Than Ever
In 2004, the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo became the first US zoo to perform a full-scale evacuation in preparation for Hurricane Ivan, during which animals were relocated to the the home of zoo director Patti Hall. Then, in the midst of rebuilding, hurricanes Dennis and Katrina wreaked more havoc. Generous donations have helped this little attraction come back in a big way: The zoo will be moving to higher ground on Oak Road, with plans to become the world's first environmentally sustainable zoo. The facility will also be designed to withstand Category 5 hurricane winds. On TripAdvisor, this beloved Gulf Shores institution is hailed as "a small zoo with big appeal," with one guest proclaiming it to be "my favorite place here in the Gulf."
