Excellent educational place for families to help non Floridians, and Floridians, to understand the flora and fauna of the region. Be sure to take in a program if you can.

While it's a great cause, it was quite limited when we were there as far as any animals being rehabilitated. It's got a lot of educational material for kids, as well as videos.

This place takes rescued animals and works with them until restored to ability to reenter the environment. A lecture on their work can be had and video cameras show the "patients" in the clinic. The gift shop is wonderful.

Did the presentation and hospital tour. The staff was enthusiastic and the facilities well maintained compared to some wildlife facilities we have toured. A good family visit.

Visited CROW today. Very impressive! The staff and volunteers are obviously dedicated to the sick or injured animals that are brought there. I highly recommend visiting their education center and taking the tour which includes the hospital. Very educational. Special thanks to Rachel, who is an excellent speaker and knows her stuff!

The CROW did a great job of displaying information about their patients. The displays are very interesting and informative and the live camera feeds from the patient / hospital areas are really neat to see. The presentation on "Why Animals come to CROW" was ok. Perhaps because we are familiar with Wildlife rescue clinics we found it to be a... More

Glad you enjoyed your visit at CROW. A majority of our presentations are kept simple so the average person can understand. Our 'Speaker Series' is more in-depth on select topics. You can view the schedule and maybe there are some topics you would like to hear more about in detail. http://crowclinic.org/articles/2017-speaker-series-schedule Thank you, CROW More

CROW does tremendous work rehabilitating wildlife. I have taken injured birds there for medical attention. The staff is very nice and extremely helpful. They love caring for the injured wildlife. I've seen everything from an Eagle to hawks, to pelicans in their rehabilitation center. If you visit here and they ask you how much a pelican weighs tell them 4... More

Their weight can be misleading due to the amount of feathers. Although, American white pelicans can weight up to 30 lbs. Thank you for caring about wildlife to bringing those in need to CROW. We couldn't do it without the help of the community. Thank you, CROW More

Anybody who loves animals will love this place. It's very interesting and informative. Saving animals and reintroducing them to there natural habitat is such a worthwhile thing to do. The people who work at caring for these animals must be very dedicated and loving people, and if I lived in this area, I'd try to be involved in this center... More

Although this stop on our day trip was a little less than we had expected, we are glad we visited. When you enter you are shown a list of the "patients" currently at the center. Although you can only view animals via live cameras, they do bring in an animal and discuss it and it's care in a small group... More

Anyone who cares a wit about wildlife should visit CROW for a lecture and guided tour. It is one of the best facilities for rehabilitation, we've ever seen. It deals with injured, sick and orphans of any species. About 60% of their patients are birds, while 30% are mammals and 10% are reptiles. The guided tour is set up in... More
