After Hurricane Irma in mid-2017 and the damage to Zoo Miami, we were forced to postpone Zoolens for one year. We were extremely happy to see that the Zoo suffered minimal damage and they were back up and running in the Fall of 2017.

Zoolens 2018 was yet another year of wildly creative photographs from our Miami-Dade county middle school students. Now celebrating our eight installment of the Zoolens℠ Photography Project, Mercantil Bank was astounded at the level of excellence from this year’s student participants.

ZoolensSM reinforces the importance of art education through photography while encouraging an appreciation for nature's wildlife. We received over 200 entries and below are the Mercantil Bank ZoolensSM Photography Project top 30 photo finalists and winners.

Congratulations to all of the finalists!
