Busch Wildlife Sanctuary

Busch Wildlife Sanctuary The Busch Wildlife Sanctuary offers free medical care and rehabilitation to sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife. While the facility strives to return all animals to the wild, for some of their patients it's just not feasable. The permanent residents become part of a wide variety of programs, from educational presentations to up-close viewing for visitors. Unlike a regular zoo, the animals at the facility provide a one-of-a-kind introduction to the native wildlife of Florida. In addition to the outdoor exhibits, guests can also visit the Discovery Center, with hands-on displays, a library, and a gift shop.

I've visited this sanctuary many times, and while it's not an activity that takes the entire day, I easily spend an hour. There are hundreds of birds, including several owl species. My most recent trip in late 2009 revealed a Florida panther, two kinds of foxes, deer and a bobcat! Unfortunately, at the time of my visit many of the animals were napping, so I didn't get to see the otter.

Admission is free, but donations are greatly appreciated.
