Stock island's best zoo. Very friendly guards and felons are the hosts at this particular zoo. Well kept and more animals than I expected. Only open every other Sunday. Nice time.

We've visited a few times and each time I'm impressed with the dedication that Jeanne has to her animals. The inmates are extremely lucky to have such a program!

Where else but in Key West would the inmates be running the zoo. Actually it is a rescue facility for animals brought to Key West that shouldn't have been. Very nice for children.

This farm is well worth the visit. There are a wide variety of animals, the facility is immaculate, and Farmer Jeanne is an excellent teacher with in-depth knowledge of the animals. Fun for adults and children alike.
