Purchased tickets on Groupon. Made plans to go, arrived at gate and they were closed for Covid. I understand the closing part but I can’t wrap my head around selling on Groupon if you are not open! Disappointing!

Enjoyed seeing all the animals. Especially like the Ligers. I’ve never seen one in any zoo so this was a first. I also really appreciate the rescue work Octagon has committed to.

Love how much this sanctuary cares for these animals that were previously in very sad and unfortunate situations! Its not too expensive and the cost goes to feed and care for the animals anyway so every penny is worth it! Staff is super friendly and they all are volunteers that truly care!

Exploring the Fort Myers area when we discovered Octagon, a very relaxed 'retirement community' for wild animals abandoned by owners or retired from zoos. Lions, Tigers, Bears and so much more - all up close and well cared for. No shows and no tours, just fun to wander and watch.

Knowing this was a retirement place for exotic animals who were confiscated because they were owned illegally, mistreated by commercial agents (i.e. circuses) and/or unwanted by private licensed owners, I really only expected a few animals. I was certainly (and unfortunately) wrong! The majority of the animals were lions, tigers, and bears. But, there were lots of different and unexpected animals here as well; such as hyenas (seriously, what kind of person thinks they can adequately raise a hyena ...in an apartment nonetheless!) This is why WE MUST HAVE stricter legislation to control exotic animal ownership!!! Soapbox aside, I appreciate the work Octagon Wildlife Sanctuary AND all their many volunteers are doing! There were no less than 15 volunteers working on the morning we visited-cleaning cages, raking the grounds, & working the front desk. THANK YOU! This place is MOST DEFINITELY worth the admission price and then some.
