We've been to places that rehab and rescue animals before in different locations and expected to see an active clinic of some sort. Unfortunately it was just one room with mostly still photo's of animals. There were a few small animals on display but not many. We're sure they do good work however from a walk around this one room it was really had to determine just how much is really done.

CROW is a wonderfully educational experience that everyone should see. They have sea creatures in aquariums. Their two octopus were both very alert and lively during our visit. We were also lucky enough to meet Gigi, their possum and an ambassador for CROW. So many posters and displays of how our waste impacts the environment. With Sanibel being one of the foremost beaches for shell collecting, it was very interesting to see artwork made from various shells. CROW is a must see!

Hi Peggy! Thank you so much for the wonderful review, however it seems you have combined CROW with the Bailey Matthews National Shell Museum down the street! While Gigi is our Ambassador, we have exhibits about the work we do with wildlife rehabilitation. The octopuses, sea creatures and shell artwork, however is featured at the shell museum! Thanks, CROW

Compelling exhibit hall with children's activities. Excellent talk given by vet tech and vet in training - kept the rapt attention of a 10 y.o. Interesting tour of the rehab hospital. You will see several of their animal "ambassadors". Otherwise they make it a point not to exhibit the wildlife being rehabbed. Tours require reservations. A phone call ahead of visit is recommended to know the daily schedule of events.

CROW takes in injured wildlife and tries to make them whole. It's an uphill battle, but a worthy effort. I didn't stay for the extended tour -- family were expecting to be fed -- so saw only the exhibits and a talk on possums. Those alone were worth the time and admission fee. The exhibits are relatively few in number, maybe 5-6 animals you can actually see, and mostly geared to kids. But it's all done really well. Staff are friendly, most of them volunteers. The talk on possums was informative. I know a lot about animals for a non-medical / science person, but still learned much (who knows about possums, anyway?). The speaker did a great job of weaving the story of CROW with the specifics of possum life, issues. She had one with her, available for selfies (but not petting...) The extended tour includes the clinics. They have three vets on staff, one focused on research. So the place is really committed. Bottom line, this won't appeal to everyone -- no dancing monkeys or swimming with the cain toads -- but anyone with a heart for animals will enjoy a visit.

I really wanted to like CROW. I think their mission and organization dedicated to rehabilitating injured animals is most noteworthy. They have treated more than 5800 injured animals in 2019, so it is clear that there is a need for their services. I am happy to support that mission, but I think the public outreach as a visitors center is a stretch. Recognizing that they need to raise funds to continue their animal rescue efforts, but as an attraction, the center is a let down. There is one fairly large exhibition room with a handful of small animals: turtles, lizards, snakes, birds, and a possum. There is a fairly sizable children’s play space where kids can play as veterinarians, treating stuffed animals. Our granddaughter enjoyed that most, as well as a coloring book activity. The rest of the hospital is only open to specially booked tours for an additional fee that must be booked in advance. The rates are reasonable: $12 for adult and $7 for children age 5 and up. They have a nice gift shop with a good variety of stuffed animals; I challenge you to escape without buying some cute, cuddly creature for your kids. If you go, plan on spending about an hour. Preschool and young elementary school kids will probably enjoy this most.
