  • Need a break from the beach? Love animals? This is the place to be. It is not your big city zoo. Nice country setting zoo with a caring friendly staff. They take care of the animals and the grounds. E...  read more »
  • Great place to take family. The refugee supports local wildlife that are hurt or injured. Been supporting them for years. 
  • We took our grands.. We went thru the Zoo at night with all the lighted scenery around us.. The animals were all active and curious as well... The kids enjoyed the trip and 
  • Nice place to visit... Some beautiful animals in a natural Florida environment. The structures are a work in progress, but it looks like the place is in good hands and the managers will work to improve everything as they are able. Support this organization that also rescues wildlife in our area!
  • I enjoyed my visit ! They are all rescued, the people were very nice and welcoming and the price isn't bad either. You can truly tell they care and love their jobs with working with animals. However, I think they should work more on updating their enclosure's . I would come back again and everyday if I lived here.
  • Had an awesome time with my two little girls and they enjoyed looking at all the different types of animals. Also the staff was so friendly and helpful. I highly recommend it for all the locals and tourists.
  • The people were very nice, although my fiancĂ© and I paid $50.00 for a lemur "encounter" expecting to actually interact with the animals. We were only allowed to stand slightly closer to the cage and feed them, not even able to touch them what so ever. The advertising was very misleading and stated 30-40 minutes I believe we were only alotted maybe 10-15 minutes. Very nice group of people working there, but I am extremely upset that we weren't provided with what was advertised.
  • A wonderful refuge! My 5 and 7 year old grandsons LOVED the experience. The staff is very friendly. A good time was had by all.
