This wildlife sanctuary gives you hope that there is a safe place for our wildlife to recover when we have been the cause of disrupting their habitats and placing them in harms way! It is well run, peaceful, and a great way to see Florida's wildlife up close. We even managed to catch a show put on by kids who... More

We love taking out of town folks to see real care and rescue efforts. A chance to see full range of Florida wildlife - and help save some.

This is a wonderful place to bring kids and family while visiting the Palm Beach area. It has a large variety of indigenous rescued animals that are unable to be returned to the wild. Bobcats, bears, alligators, birds of many species. They have several demonstrations during the day telling visitors about these animals and the environment and why they were... More

Great way to have children and adults get a close up look at Floruda Native Wildlife. Most of the animals are rescued. Whether a tourist or resident, a place that you need to visit at least once.
