The Miami Zoo is taking the fireworks show out of the park, saying it’s now more important to preserve the park’s natural surroundings.
The zoo announced the decision Tuesday on its Facebook page, saying the park is no longer in the best interest of its guests, staff and visitors.
The park, which celebrates its 75th anniversary in 2018, is the largest of its kind in the country.
The park has been in the hands of the city of Miami since 1935, but its current owners purchased it in 2015.
The zoo has a permanent collection of over 30,000 animals, and many are endangered.
The decision comes after the city announced plans in October to remove the park from the National Register of Historic Places.
The Zoo’s decision comes on the heels of a recent decision by the National Park Service to eliminate two endangered species from the list of threatened species under the Endangered Species Act.
The move comes in the wake of several other park closures, including a six-month closure to the Great Miami Sea Grant Bridge, and the closure of the South Beach and Old Miami beaches.
