Great place to take the kids to see some Florida wildlife up close, as well as some exotics. For only a $5 donation you can see a trio of ring-tailed lemurs, an Emu named Coco, a goat named Jennifer, a raccoon called Precious, a fox,...More

Don't miss a trip here, it's a gem the animals are so well looked after with spotlessly clean habitats and food, they look so healthy and happy. Of course they are rescued and sadly can't be released to the wild for a variety of reasons....More

A quick trip to see the animals. Worth it if you are in the area, it is $5. Also, offers a quick hike to the lake where you may spot some gators and butterflies. Enjoy.

All the staff are volunteers and you can tell they really care about these animals. Not hard to find. Is set back really far from main road. Plenty of parking. Little gift shop when you pay. $5.00 admission. Nice pens and cages for the animals....More

We spent our last morning in Orlando here. Our little boy loved seeing the different animals especially the lemurs and squirrels. Well worth the $5 admission. Please consider visiting and supporting the great work they're doing here.

This is a small refuge with about 10-12 different creatures. All the animals appeared well fed and cared for. It's located in a picturesque setting away from the hustle and bustle of International Drive and the parks.
