Definitely worth the trip! We attended a sea turtle presentation that was very informative. We did not get to see a sea turtle, but were happy to interact with a recovering gopher tortoise. You are not able to see the "patients" but they do have several live video feeds where you can view incoming animals and some of those recovering.... More

Not only are the staff and volunteers dedicated to helping and protect injured and sick wildlife, visitors are too. The entire purpose of this facility is for the benefit of the wildlife but we benefit too by understanding the struggles wildlife face throughout south Florida. The exhibits are well designed, interesting and to a degree heartbreaking. I appreciate everything CROW... More

You might read reviews about how small the display area is or how much the rice of admission is compared to what you get, but these reviewers are missing the point. By visiting CROW, you are contributing to an important part of the conservation of Sanibel Island's natural resources and receiving a fascinating glimpse at emergency veterinary medicine as you...

There are no live animals on display. It is a small museum that illustrates how CROW came about and how animals are cared for. We spent about 20 minutes there. There are live feeds of animals being cared for at the larger facility behind the victories center but that is it. I completely understand why they don't want injured animals... More

My daughter wanted a CROW shirt, so we made a special trip for a shirt. The gift shop is amazing, a must. All proceeds goes to the care of injured and sick animals. Shirts, puzzles, décor, jewelry, books, stuffed animals that are precious. You will want one of each. Most items are educational and about the animals of the Island.

Sanibel's outstanding animal rehabilitation clinic treats thousands of wounded critters each year from the island and surrounding area. The visitors center has interactive displays detailing the work done there. It is worth a visit to see the care given to a vast variety of wildlife.

There are talks there daily on a range of subjects such as turtles and tortoises. This is an excellent facility that takes in wildlife for treatment of injuries. The goal being to return them to the wild. you cannot tour the facility but there are several live feed videos.

If you've never been to an animal rehab center then you should go. It can restore you faith in the selflessness of people. This clinic helps all kinds of injured animals and they do a great job. I have brought injured birds and turtles here and the people are just terrific. If you can, stop by and tell them what... More

As an avid eagle follower, visited CROW after learning about them when they cared for bald eagle 'Ozzie' from N. Ft. Meyers. Great facility, worth stopping for if you are interested in wildlife rehab.

We learned a lot on our visit to C.R.O.W. They had a nice environment and we were able to see how they rehabilitate wildlife. Thanks!!
