  • I have been bringing my three year-old grandson to Wednesdays story hour. It is a wonderful experience! Staff loves children and their story time reader is excellent! She Knows how to read a story book to children – holding it where all can see, Reading with expression and very very patient with a little ones. After story time we always visit turtles and every animal, usually having lunch which we bring with us by one of the animal exhibits. Excellent way to teach children. Good way for children to learn how to sit patiently in a group and listen to a story.
  • Great place to bring the family. The kids will love it. Its full of nature. Plenty of picnic tables. The staff is wonderful. They educate you on the wildlife. A must see.
  • Well kept facility. Donation based, so accessible to everyone. Wide variety of local animals. Walkable for young and old. Make the walk out to the ponds-- we saw a 10 foot gator there!
  • I was very impressed with Busch Wildlife Sanctuary. It is great to see that animals that would not be able to survive in the wild can be given a safe place to live. The grounds were well maintained and shady which is always nice for South Florida summers. All the animals look well taken care of and the pens are very well designed with pools and shade for all the animals. I highly recommend this for everyone.
  • First time coming by, thank you so much for all you do for the animals and for the community! This is such a special place for me and my family. Hope to come back soon!
