AAA Editor Notes
Jungle Island is at 1111 Parrot Jungle Tr. on Watson Island. Step into a lush, tropical jungle on an island in Biscayne Bay and mingle with birds, monkeys and some of the world's rarest creatures. Highlights at the 17-acre garden sanctuary include Peanut and Pumpkin, rare twin orangutans. You'll also see chimpanzees, exotic birds, kangaroos, lemurs, alligators and snakes, among others.

Vultures fly just inches above the heads of the audience during The Winged Wonders show, which is also where you'll see the colorful, ostrichlike cassowary and the sanctuary's signature performing cockatoo. Wild Adventures is a show that features an up-close view of animals. Journey to the Florida Everglades and see flora and fauna from the region without leaving the park as you wander through the Everglades Habitat & Walk exhibit. Children enjoy the hands-on petting barn with its African pygmy goats, llama, pigs and cows, and Adventure Bay has rock climbing walls and an aerial ropes course for children and adults. Periodic animal feedings and presentations round out Jungle Island's daily offerings, and for an even closer encounter with the park's exotic animals, you can reserve behind-the-scenes VIP Experiences or partake in Lemurs Up-Close or Hanging with Sloths.

Rental strollers and wheelchairs are available.

Food is available. Time: Allow 4 hours minimum.
