  • We visited CROW for the "Wildlife Walk" tour of the facility, the presentation from both of our guides was excellent and very informative. Don't miss this when visiting Sanibel, the experience is grea...  more »
  • I learned so much about the many ways we impact wildlife and the extraordinary measures this organization takes to alleviate suffering and return animals to the wild. Excellent! 
  • We listened to a presentation by an employee (didn't catch the beginning so not sure of her title) about some of the animals rescued and helped at the center. Disappointed that we couldn't actually se...  more »

  • 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.
  • I will not donate to an organization whose Facebook page restricts our getting information on E8 (for one) because we choose not to "be liked." By restricting our ability to participate through viewing full ongoing updates I feel I can't be bothered with an excellent organization's support. Don't let Facebook ruled your growth. There are many of us out here that feel as I do. Suggest: You open up Facebook for "unliked" viewers and go ahead like others to not let us comment as others have done. Thank you. Then we will give you "5" stars which you certainly deserve.
  • So many creatures have been given a second chance because of CROW. You won't find a more caring & dedicated group of people. Thank you CROW, for all you do. I'm sorry I can only give you five stars, 10 seems more appropriate
  • 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.
  • Very cool center! While not huge, their visitor center is interactive, newer & great across ages (toddler to older adult). A few smaller animals were on display and live video of other areas played (my kids loved watching the raccoons play). The displays were well thought out. We missed their big Friday tour as well as a talk one of the staff was giving. We certainly wouldve liked to have more time here before returning home. Check their site in advance for daysthours of events - they vary based on high/low season.
