Nice sanctuary to see wildlife. Small so you can do a quick visit with your friends or children. I like to take my up north friends when they come down in the winter....

It started out small and has continued to grow-nicely. It is a GREAT cause and attendance fees are voluntary. We have been there numerous times and always feel good about contributing a nice little chunk of change-good all around. Great place to bring kids for a picnic, party or just to be educated.

What a great, FREE place to take a break. They have so many interesting animals on display, and the coolest part is that whenever possible they release wild animals back to nature after nursing them back to health. I love trying to make the turkeys gobble.

this is an easy stop for an afternoon in Jupiter. the facility is clean, animals all seem happy and content in there habitat. It is a peaceful easy walk. You could spend an hour or the day. Support those who care about wounded, abandoned and injured animals. they are doing a great thing.

This wildlife preserve is amazing. It's huge! There are so many animals to see and they do short shows and bring out animals for you to see and touch up close. Everyone is so nice and welcoming. Definitely a place you want to bring children and family/friends visiting Florida! A must-see!!!

For a donation you can visit this wildlife rescue sanctuary for an afternoon. You will walk thru the grounds and see the animals thay they are caring for and hope to return to the wild. Nice gift shop with interest things for children.

It is run strictly from donations and volunteers. It is always so clean and the people that work there are always so pleasent and informative. If... More

I love this place; I learn something new about animals every time I go and sit through the talks. I highly recommend going early in the day if it's warm out, also where some bug spray. If you have a chance be sure to go, it's like a mini zoo in our own back yard.
