This animal sanctuary has helped rehabilitate thousands of animals over the years and serves as an important pillar for educating the community about wildlife and conservation.
If you love seeing wildlife up close and learning all about different species and find yourself in south Florida, you can’t miss out on a visit to Busch Wildlife Sanctuary. Located in the town of Jupiter, this sanctuary takes in all forms of Floridian wildlife and helps rehabilitate them to release them back into the wild once they’re well enough, or they provide a comfortable and caring home for the animals if they aren’t able to be released. Busch Wildlife is a nonprofit organization, so visiting the sanctuary is free but donations are immensely appreciated and help provide the animals with the quality care they deserve.
Busch Wildlife opened in 1994 and has helped rehabilitate thousands of animals in that time. There are animal exhibits throughout the sanctuary with informational signage so you can learn all about the different species you see. You’ll have the chance to see black bears, river otters, many kinds of birds, alligators, snakes and other reptiles, tortoises, Florida panthers, and many other animals! This is a wonderful place to bring kids to help educate them, and the sanctuary also has trails and holds different events and programs that are geared towards kids. Busch Wildlife Sanctuary is open from Monday to Saturday between the hours of 10 and 4:30. Come be a part of Busch Wildlife’s important mission while getting to see incredible animal species the next time you’re in the area!
