  • This is a must do in Punta Gorda. If you need to find an activity for your house guests, bring them to 'Poncie' Park and set them loose. If your timing is right, a naturalist will have an owl or rapto...  more »

  • Beautiful sanctuary. A lot of animals. They hold classes where they show animal feedings, animal knowledge. They have a animal hospital on site.staff very knowledgeable. Free to Getty in but a small donation is asked if you can spare. Owl's, eagles,turtles, pelicans,ferrets, hawks, variety of birds and many more. Definitely worth von out to see
  • Love the wildlife center. The beach. Fishing pier. Trail was. Pleasant. Not too hot either
  • Brought in injured turtle. Staff pleasant and took quick action in caring for it. Look forward to calling them and hearing good news!!! Great to see places like this! Keep up the good work Peace River Wildlife Center!
  • 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.
