  • Refuge for birds unable to survive in the wild. You will see pelicans, eagle, blue jays...and beloved Luna, the white owl. They also take in some small mammals. Donations are accepted near the entry...be generous-that is what keeps them open!
  • Wonderful place to visit! They rescue and rehabilitate wild Florida wildlife. Those that cannot be released stay at the sanctuary and help educate the public. The sanctuary has an amazing variety of birds and also several varieties of tortoise and even an opossum. Guides are very knowledgeable about all the wildlife and happy to explain and answer questions. If you are there at 2-2:30 you can watch them feed the pelicans, egrets and storks. A small donation is requested and it is well worth it. The center depends solely on donations for funding.
