  • We visited the Back to Nature Wildlife Refuge for a guided tour and we had a great time. Our tour guide was really nice and very informative. It was interesting to see the variety of animals and to le...  more »
  • Don't miss a trip here, it's a gem the animals are so well looked after with spotlessly clean habitats and food, they look so healthy and happy. Of course they are rescued and sadly can't be released ...  more »
  • A quick trip to see the animals. Worth it if you are in the area, it is $5. Also, offers a quick hike to the lake where you may spot some gators and butterflies. Enjoy.  more »

  • I chose Back to Nature to take an ill squirrel I had in my yard. They graciously took the squirrel in and was caring and compassionate. I walked the property afterwards and found the animals there to be clean and well cared for. Their cages were roomy and had items to keep them entertained. Thank you for all that you do for our nature's creatures!
  • The refuge is small but the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. One of them came out with me to point out the bald eagle nest nearby and let me use her binoculars to see the juvenile eagle. The animals looked well taken care of, with plates of fruit/veggies donated from Publix and dead chicks for one of the owls. The staff are very caring; they keep enclosures clean and even rearrange the fixtures so that the animals don't get bored. Entrance fee was only $5. Their main building is a cute portable with a gift shop and a bathroom. There's a map of local hiking trails there too. The staff are great at describing the trails. They also reminded me to stay hydrated so I wouldn't collapse outside, which I appreciated. I want to give a big thank you to Judy and the other staff I met on my visit. It was an amazing experience.
  • Came all the way up here from Fort Pierce to drop off a baby squirrel because this place had the best reviews and now I see why! All I had to do was fill out a form on how the squirrel had been and they took him in and let me walk through where they had all the other animals. Coming here was so worth the 2 hour drive and I will definitely come here again if I find another wild baby animal.
  • It’s a great place. There is many animals there and they have awesome knowledge about the animals. For a $5 donation, the nature walk is a great thing to see. They have a lot of animals and a lake view at the end. Overall, it is a great place to visit
  • Great place to visit! Wife and I had fun. Tour guide was great and full of information. Will definitely be back
