Must see for the Jupiter area

This was a must see for the Jupiter area. It had a variety of animals and was educational and fun for families as well. You can explore the zoo in about an hour and half.

This attraction is great as the entry is free and you donate for the care of the animals. Nice to see a place looking after sick and injured wildlife. Nice park to walk around and informative for children. Due to no set free you could pop in for an hour and just make a small donation.

This is a casual wooded nature place. They have several animals. Its seems more of a rescue place. They have a small nature show. I Have been here twice and would go back

I gained some insights into Florida wildlife during my visit. Staff is very committed to the mission of the sanctuary and was eager to interact with visitors. If you are able to plan your visit to include the daily show in the amphitheater, that would be good.

after living in Jupiter for 20 years my daughter and I have come across many species of wildlife in need of immediate help: from a VERY LARGE injured sea bird on Tequesta beach to a dying raccoon in my backyard.

We liked to see the dangerous snakes up close in the window boxes to educate ourselves since we just relocated here ( only rattlesnakes in San Diego.) nice to see the owls, foxes and bears so close!

I support as well as visit. Great place to bring family, especially children. As a Florida native I like establishments that are helping preserve the natural beauty of Florida.

The kayaking route is absolutely beautiful! Thoroughly enjoyed doing it with my family. Fish were constantly hopping out of the water all around us. We stopped on a little island half way, and enjoyed studying the sea creatures in the pools of water.

We go here about once a month. They have birthday party options too and it raises money for the animals. It is a true rehab first and release if possible. They have special events that are amazing- buy kids gifts from gift store- it helps
