First of all I would like to thank you for visiting Luminosa at Jungle Island. Jungle Island is dedicated to providing a wonderful home to its animal family while sharing them with visitors in ways that foster awareness and sensitivity toward the animals. The animals at Jungle Island are the core of our park experience.
Jungle Island has been a respected Miami institution for over 80 years and is proud to serve as a sanctuary and home to over 350 animals and birds. Under the guidance and supervision of trained animal experts, Jungle Island provides visitors with up-close-and-personal experiences with some of the world’s most rare and endangered animals, in order to educate guests about wildlife conservation and nature.
The health and wellbeing of the animals takes precedence over all other interests. Each animal receives the highest level of care including:
· care and maintenance standards, which meet or exceed requirements set forth by the Zoological Association of America (Jungle Island is ZAA accredited)
· daily visual examinations, regular veterinary physicals, routine diagnostics, an individualized diet and supplements
· specialized enrichment and wellness
· a caretaker who is familiar with the individual animal, his or her diet, behavior, and appearance
During the production of Luminosa, we consulted regularly with our park President John Dunlap, who is the former managing director of the San Diego Zoo, as well as Dr. Jason Chatfield, Jungle Island’s VP of Zoological Operations and veterinarian. Both are the world’s leading animal experts. Both John and Jason are available via phone, email or an in person meeting.
During Luminosa Festival of Lights, we share our love and passion for the animals and our park with guests from all over the world.
