  • Thank you for all you do!!! Very educational and very friendly! We enjoyed learning how your center cares for and takes in injured wildlife. Thank you for caring and being their voice; to help educate the public by sharing your love, passion and compassion for wildlife!
  • We absolutely loved our time here. All staff members were expectionally kind and helpful. When you first enter there are educational videos to watch and afterwards you can visit some animals in their little homes. We have a little one who aspires to become a veterinarian so this was absolutely a great place for her to explore. Inside you can view x rays of actual animals that have been admitted into the facility with a detailed explanation of their time at the center. Highly recommended.
  • Reminiscent of Best Friends' program Wild Friends in Utah, CROW does impressive and important work. The exhibit I saw laid out what they do and was a good educational reminder to first do no harm if you encounter wildlife you think needs your help, as well as a lesson in invasive species.
  • I had high hopes. Was disappointed. Nice visitor center building but little to see and there is no interactions. Felt like going to the carnival and paying to "go behind the curtain" to see something special then emerge feeling ripped off. I love what they do but the visitor center probably supresses interest & support. It's basically a high priced gift shop with an extra cost option to read sign boards and look at pictures. Sorry. I know they do wonderful things there. Wish it was more accessible. I took out of state visitors there without having been there myself. $6 for bridge, lunch, HIGH parking fees on island & admission to CROW left a car full of weary guests.
  • C.R.O.W. is a wonderful place with caring staff. Their work with the wild animals is very thorough and professional. The visitor center is nicely stocked with gifts! I stop by every time I am on Sanibel.
