If you have kids that are interested in becoming a vet or taking care of animals, it is definitely worth a visit. Video at the beginning tells you about the clinic and then the displays show you more about the tools they use to treat injured animals. You cannot see any live animals which is a little disappointing but understandable.... More

Privately funded, this facility is the willing receipient of injured birds, mammals and reptiles. Resident and visiting professional try to repair, nurture, and rehabilitate these unique creatures to return them to the wild. Sadly, if they can not be released, they are euthanized, so give GENEROUSLY so that more can be done to return the injured wildlife back to health

We were very saddened to see the injuries sustained by wildlife on and off the island, but heartened by the work being done at CROW. Loved the cameras showing behind the scenes looks at wildlife in their care.

We are blessed to have places like this around. They nurse injured animals back to health and then either return them to the wild or find them homes based on the circumstance. Go there. Donate!

This was nice it was the first time we had been there, I think if they are not going to have live animals the doctors could at least be taking care of an animal on the live cameras that would keep people interest longer.....We did learn a lot from the display and it was enjoyable.

This is a great visit for a rainy day when you can't hit the beach anyway. We arrived just in time for a short talk about the work of the center and presentation of their animal "ambassador"--a possum so badly injured in a predator attack that it could not be returned to the wild. The center had to get special... More

After reading about the life-saving work done at CROW, I wanted to visit. The hospital, understandably, is off-limits to protect the injured and recovering animals, but the visitor center is superb, with beautiful graphics, interactive displays and educational sections that give you an understanding of the dangers facing wild animals and how to help them in our increasingly bustling world....

It was a good educational experince but I thought there would be some hands on experince or view of the rehabilitation animals but there isn't. Its basically an "education center" and a gift store. We thought it would be more. Now apparetnyl twice a day they give a "talk" but we didn't make it at those times.

Some of the reviews say there's nothing to see, and it is true you can't see the animals because it is a hospital, but if you're willing to read about what they do at CROW, it is a really amazing place. There is a lot of great information about the animal intake/treatment/rehab/release process, as well as the roles of volunteers,... More

This was our second visit to CROW over the years (haven't been to Sanibel in 7 years). We are totally amazed at the dedication of staff and volunteers. We are still reeling from the statistic of over 3500 animals treated in a year. Self directed tour is worth the time. It's a real eye opener for folks who don't think... More
