Patient Profiles: Owls of Southwest Florida

(Daily Presentation)

Raptors are birds that prey on other animals in the wild to survive. Their specialized beaks and talons make them some of the most effective hunters.

Baby Care at CROW

(Daily Presentation)

Wildlife parents are very devoted to the care of their young and rarely abandon them, and juveniles found "abandoned" might actually be in a natural stage of development. Those needing assistance are placed in a specialized wing of the wildlife hospital and are provided supportive care around the clock until they are old enough to care for themselves

* 2 p.m. (Adults: $12, Ages 4-12: $7, Age 3 and under: Free)

Patient Profiles: Snakes of Southwest Florida

(Daily Presentation)

Florida is home to 46 species of native snakes, only 6 of which are venomous. Although there is a widespread fear and misunderstanding of this animal, most species are harmless to humans and form vital links in the ecosystem. Snakes are extremely valuable because they are efficient at monitoring pest populations without relying on chemical pesticides which can degrade the environment and harm other animal species.
