Red Fox at Brookgreen

The Lowcountry Zoo has been an important element of the mission for Brookgreen Gardens since its inception. It is one of five institutions accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) in South Carolina. The AZA is America's most respected organization for zoos and aquariums. All of the native animals in the Lowcountry Zoo were either bred and raised in captivity or have sustained a major disability due to injury. In either case, these animals could not survive in the wild.




Our compassionate, caring, kind and oh, so hard working, zoo staff is exceptional! Their devotion to and love of the animals at the Lowcountry Zoo shines through with the high quality of care and attention our animals receive every single day.

Thank you for your passion. What a difference you make.
