NAPLES, Fla. - Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens is announcing the recent birth of an impala fawn.

The new baby girl is just a few weeks old and can be seen daily at the nationally accredited zoo and historic botanical garden.

Impalas are native to the savannas and woodlands in the eastern and southern portions of Africa. Like many of their kind, impala fawns are quick to get on the move. They can walk as soon as 15 minutes and run within an hour of birth.

Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization cooperating in conservation programs both in and outside the wild for endangered species including a full day of fun presentations, giraffe feeding, and wild cruise through islands of monkeys, lemurs, and apes.

Naples Zoo welcomes guests daily from 9:00 to 5:00 p.m. and is located at 1590 Goodlette-Frank Road, Naples. To learn more, visit or call (239) 262-5409.
