This place is the best. So nice. I take everyone that comes into town. Great place for kids and adults. Free admission but also ask for donation. It's well worth a donation. They treat these animals so well. Anyone would love this sanctuary.

This is a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, what a delight. Have been here before several times but somehow this visit was exceptionable. Weather was hot but did not notice as so many trees for shade and comfort. Animals all looked happy and cages were clean, alligator's cage was being cleaned while the alligator watched to... More

We took our two grandsons here and they thoroughly enjoyed it. The hands-on show really captured them. They are two and four.

I've been here a couple of times. It's tucked away out of sight, but easy to get to. Being a sanctuary you don't see the same animals each time, so you'll have something to look forward to the next time you go. There have been many animals there each time I went and there and they seem well cared for.... More

Please set aside a morning or afternoon to spend time at this amazing wildlife rehab facility. You will be amazed how up close and personal you can get with these beautiful animals and how much you will learn from the very dedicated staff. No entrance fee but please provide a donation

What a great way to spend an hour with friends or family. The animals are often entertaining. The birds of prey being a main attraction. There are gators and gophers and panthers and bears. Heck I will sometimes spend 20 minutes staring at the turtles by the feeding station. There is a daily talk or presentation where you can touch... More

Incredible! The sanctuary finds injured & mamed wild animals. They do a great job of nursing these animals back to heath & release them back into the wild. Children of all ages & animal lovers will find this a grest place to visit.

Always fun to take the kids to this "donations only" attraction. If you time it right, you'll see the wildlife handlers bringing out aligators, skunks, snakes and all kinds of "critters" that will make the little ones jump for joy.

The kids will love the place. A voluntary donation and you are in. A lot of cool animals like Eagles, alligators, Bobcats, bears, etc. The grounds are beautiful and very Florida everglades like. A great place to kill a few hours with the kids for cheap. You can feed turtles who swim up to you when they hear you purchase... More
