Formerly known as Parrot Jungle, Jungle Island is now an 18-acre, green-engineered tropical jungle that is home to hundreds of tropical birds, 2,000 species of plants and flowers, and lays claim to one of the best trained bird show in the world. Jungle Island traces its origins to when Austrian immigrant Franz Scherr opened a feed supply store and realized that people would pay to see his trained and friendly birds. As an acquaintance of Monkey Jungle founder, Joe DuMond, Scherr was inspired enough to start his own jungle where birds could “fly free.” Today, Jungle Island houses fish, reptiles, primates and mammals. Jungle Island is open every day of the year: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Admission is $39.95 for adults, $37.95 for seniors and $32.95 for children ages 3 to 10, with discounts available. Jungle Island is located in the heart of Miami, off Interstate 395 between downtown Miami and South Beach.
