Brevard Zoo is proud to offer grants to conservation organizations through its Quarters for Conservation (Q4C) Program.
The Brevard Zoo Conservation Fund (BZCF) fulfills that mission by funding wildlife conservation projects, educating guests about current conservation issues, and encouraging participation of Zoo guests in conservation decisions. The vision for the Brevard Zoo Conservation Fund is local communities protecting their wildlife and wild places for future generations. The Quarters for Conservation (Q4C) program supports the Brevard Zoo Conservation Fund.
- In 2024, four projects will be selected to receive a $25,000 grant through the Q4C program.
- If selected, two organizations will receive funds in January 2024 and the other two in July 2024.
- Brevard Zoo will assign the selected organizations funding schedule based on the project’s need and focal species or ecosystem. Availability of funding is based on guest admissions.
