We thought we would see the actual treatment rooms but we did see live feed of rehabilitating critters. It was very interesting. They present a video of their activities and displays to view as well as the live feed. Very nice gift shop. Worth the trip.

We made our first visit to CROW this year. It is not a good place to visit with small children as the recovering animals need peace and quiet. For adults with an interest in preserving wildlife this was an extraordinary experience. We learned so much in our visit. I no longer consider the possum on my property a nuisance thanks... More

We enjoyed visiting CROW; the visitors center is nice, but the real gem was the talk and tour with Rachel; the state of the art animal hospital was very interesting to tour; we saw an osprey getting xrayed and it was feeding time for the baby racoons and possums ( they had 75 at the time!) = also got to...

These people do such a good job, they work tirelessly in making a difference to sick and injured animals, if your in the area visit them it is a very interesting education and plenty to see at this wonderful centre.

These folks need your money to help rehabilitate injured wildlife of all kinds. The place is quite small, so no need to spend much time. It's best to go when there is a docent presentation. The day we went, there was a raptor "ambassador" present who was quite the hit with kids and adults alike. Definitely a place that is... More

This place has some nice video and cool information, but you really don't get to see the animals up close. They are getting ready to put a couple that cannot be returned to the wild on display, but the others is via video. Just send them the donation instead and spend the time at the beach instead.

Thank you for your support. We are a wildlife hospital and not a zoo so unfortunately we don't have our patients on display. We do have one of our Animal Ambassadors present during our daily 11 a.m. presentation. We also offer "Wildlife Walks with Staff and Rehabilitators" on Friday's that include a tour of the CROW campus and wildlife hospital.... More

We were not really sure what to expect and after seeing the small room of items to look at I thought the $7 fee might be a bit high. (Children are free.) However, we ended up really enjoying it. There was a little power point presentation by one of the interns and my young children listened and participated. There are... More

The staff is very friendly and informative. We were lucky enough to meet a speciality youth service dog that had been rescued from a puppy mill type environment, that now spends a lot of time at CROW with her owner. Well worth the visit alone. They do have periodic tours, usually every other Friday for $20, that lets you see... More

First, the website said donation, but when we got there admission was $9 each. You could not see any animals. There were webcams. I can watch videos on Animal Planet! They said they use webcams because the animals are sick. I have been to other facilities where the animals were behind glass or one way mirrors. It may have been... More

Sorry to hear about your disappointment in regard to your recent visit. CROW is a wildlife hospital and not a zoo so our patients are not on display. We have three new exhibits in our visitor education center that feature wildlife such as tokay gecko's, cane toad and eastern indigo snake with the additional wildlife coming in the near future....

We did the 1 1/2 hour Wildlife Walk. If you want to see behind the scenes and learn about the critters on the island, this the place for you. We had a superstar speaker and now have even more of an appreciation for the island.

We are glad you were able to join us for the "Wildlife Walk with Rehabilitators and Staff." Our goal is for visitors to leave with an appreciation for CROW and wildlife so it was nice to read that you gained that from your visit. We hope you can visit with us again in the future.
