Mission & Values


We are sincerely dedicated to the long-term conservation of nature's animals through propagation and public education. Our long-term efforts to expand the population of rare and endangered species have resulted in successful breeding of several different species of protected animals.

Education Mission

Every day we strive to inspire people to value wildlife and nature and to help protect animals and their natural environments through conservation. To accomplish these goals we pledge to: produce educational and enjoyable programs, promote awareness and conservation of animals and their natural environments, and provide resources for the development of staff and volunteers to increase knowledge and potential.

Education Vision

Brights Zoo is dedicated to increasing interest and appreciation toward animals and their natural environments through entertaining, informative experiences that also emphasize the importance of conserving nature.

Conservation is our Passion

Brights Zoo is a privately owned zoo.  Therefore, the zoo does not receive any federal, state, or local funding. All admission proceeds go directly towards animal care and upkeep of the zoo. This includes animal housing, appropriate diet, veterinary care, new exhibit design and construction, and facility maintenance.
