And we found it to be very interesting nice. Would definitely recommend it. Donations are accepted and needed to keep the place going. Especially good for young children.

This is a great place for anyone who loves animals. They accept donations, but entry is free (please make a donation if you go). There are so many types of birds & owls, a croc, a gator, black bears, panthers, & more. It is clean and easy to navigate. You are up close with most of the animals. This is... More

Interesting collection of animals in need of rehab or temporary shelter and even permanent residence in some cases. Animals are outdoors in pens rather than indoors in cages. I saw a red fox, a pair of bobcats, two Florida panthers each in its own pen, tortoises, all manner and size of birds, deer, wild turkeys, a peacock, among others. There's... More

This magnificent wildlife rehabilitation zoo is worth a visit and is especially great for children with hands-on wildlife shows every day. Watching a child stroking a baby alligator is precious to behold. No admission fee - just donate! It's worth a trip.

Nice way to spend an hour or so, and it's free! Bears, panthers, many birds, small mammals, mostly rescued and hopefully being rehabbed. Small gift shop. Donations encourages. Nice walking paths. Great for kids.

I dare say that this is a lovely one-stop location for a zoo and an animal rehab center. If you are looking for something fun, exciting, nature and animal-loving centered, then you definitely want to add this to your list of places to visit while you are in Jupiter. It's tucked away, yet in the heart of everything. It's right... More

I have a pass so I go more than I might without one. It can get very hot due to less wind. It's on the intercoastal facing Jupiter Island and near the state park.the little museum is good for 15-25 minutes and money goes to a good cause. Unless a school bus is in the parking lot you will be... More

Cute, small 'zoo'. Nice walking paths, animals are close enough to see. Great for an hour or two. We plan to go back for animal feedings. No entry fee but donations are gladly accepted. Also, there are picnic tables if you want to pack a lunch.
