The Busch Wildlife Sanctuary is a non-profit organization dedicated to the protection and conservation of Florida’s wildlife and natural resources.
In 1994 the Peter W. Busch Family Foundation joined forces with the Wildlife Rehabilitation and Environmental Education Center to create the Busch Wildlife Sanctuary.
The Sanctuary offers visitors a rare opportunity to learn about Florida's wildlife and natural environments. The concept of this facility was not to simply build a "zoo" exhibiting caged animals, but to create a unique refuge that combines a community nature center with a wildlife hospital.
Nature trails lead visitors through pine flat-woods, oak hammocks, and cypress wetlands. Along the trails are wildlife habitats exhibiting a variety of native animals from bald eagles to Florida panthers.
This unique facility offers a one-of-a-kind opportunity to learn about nature while providing a sanctuary for wildlife and people. It’s a great place to bring the whole family for a real wild experience!
And the best part? It's free admission. However, you are able to donate at the gift shop. It will be money well spent as they further help to aid animals under duress.
