What Makes Monkey Jungle One of the Best Attractions in Miami for Kids?
Miami certainly has a lot for families to do together. At Monkey Jungle, we think that we are one of the best attractions in Miami for kids and their parents because we offer something that most other places don’t have, and that something is a sense of wonder at the magnificence of wildlife and nature.
Want to learn more about what you and your family can expect from a visit to Monkey Jungle? Here are a few.
You Can Interact with the Monkeys
When you’re a kid, going to the zoo can be an exciting experience. But something that we’ve always felt that many zoos lack is the ability to interact with the animals in a meaningful way. At Monkey Jungle, our Rainforest Adventure Tour allows guests to not only see and hear the monkeys and primates in our park, but also to feed them. It’s not uncommon for the monkeys to climb up onto your shoulders when they see you have food, so be prepared to get up close and personal!
Science and Education Are a Big Part of Who We Are
Science and education have been a part of Monkey Jungle since Joseph DuMond founded it in the 1930s when he released six Java monkeys into the dense subtropical forest near Miami. From that beginning, Monkey Jungle has been a part of an archaeological dig in 1994 that unearthed fossils and bones from the American lion, the dire wolf, and the Pleistocene horse and camel. Continuing this legacy, Monkey Jungle also partners with the DuMond Conservancy, which strives to engage scientists, students, and the public in the understanding and stewardship of nonhuman primates and their tropical forest habitats.
You can be sure that a day spent at Monkey Jungle with your kids will be full of educational opportunities.
