Happy Singles Awareness Day! We're happy to be home to plenty of bachelors and bachelorettes. Here are a few of our favorite bachelors. Some of these animals will always live the single-life, but some of them are just waiting for that special someone—and we're in charge of being their matchmakers! As part of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, we participate in several Species Survival Programs—a breeding program organized to look at genetics of each individual animal living in an AZA accredited facility. Participating animals will be matched by AZA specialists with a potential mate and, if they like each other, they may have babies to help continue a healthy population of threatened and endangered species. #CentralFloridaZoo #LoveFL #Sanford #WeAreAZA #valentines #bachelor
