About BUSCH WILDLIFE SANCTUARY INC
17855 Rocky Pines Road, JUPITER, FL 33478, US
Busch Wildlife Sanctuary is a non-profit organization dedicated to the protection and conservation of Florida’s wildlife and natural resources. To accomplish this goal the Sanctuary has a two fold mission of wildlife rehabilitation and environmental education.
Today, the Busch Wildlife Sanctuary provides free comprehensive medical and rehabilitative care to over 6,000 injured wild animals with the ultimate goal of returning recovered patients to their natural habitats.
In addition to its wildlife rehabilitation efforts, the Busch Wildlife Sanctuary offers community outreach programs to over 150,000 people annually. Live, non-releasable wild animals play an important role in the Sanctuary's educational presentations. These animals offer the public a rare opportunity to learn from nature up-close and helps to create a memorable message of respect for all living creatures and their habitats.
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!
