Nashville Zoo to allow viewing of Coral Ark for just One Day


Nashville ZooNashville, TN – On June 8th, 2021 from 10:00am to 4:00pm, the Nashville Zoo will open the HCA Healthcare Veterinary Center lobby so guests can see and learn about the Zoo’s newest conservation program to save coral reefs. The one-day event celebrates World Ocean Day and will include a view of the Zoo’s coral ark, a pledge wall for guests, and experts on hand to answer questions.

“Living so far away from the coast, many people are not aware that Florida’s coral reef tract is in real trouble,” said David Oehler, Nashville Zoo Vice President. “Our Zoo, along with other zoos and aquariums across the country are working collectively as a protective ark for thousands of reef-building corals in hopes that one day, they can be placed back into Florida’s reef tract.”
