If you are interested in knowing more about the native animals of Florida, becoming involved in the rehabilitation of injured wildlife, and getting face to face with some species, Busch Wildlife Sanctuary is the perfect place for that opportunity! Located right off the I-95 exit in Jupiter and just a short drive from Tequesta and Palm Beach Gardens, the sanctuary is composed of a wildlife hospital, nature center, and nature trails which lead visitors through pine flatwoods, oak hammocks, and cypress wetlands.
While walking through the boardwalk and trails, visitors will come into contact with several wildlife exhibits with a variety of native animal species, including bald eagles, hawks, panthers, deer, crocodiles, alligators, otters, foxes, snakes, and even bears! Keep in mind that this is not a zoo. All animals located in the sanctuary are in the process of going through rehabilitation with the hopes of someday being released back into their natural habitat. Because of this, different varieties of animals will be available for viewing at different times.
Below are some of the current residents that were there during our visit in June of 2016.
The sanctuary was founded in 1983 and the current facility was constructed in 1997. Cost of admission for individuals is free with donations being encouraged as The Busch Wildlife Sanctuary is a non-profit organization funded by donations.
The Sanctuary’s wildlife rescue and rehabilitation program provides free comprehensive medical care to over 5,000 sick, injured, and orphaned wild animals each year. Close to 90% of the animals treated at the sanctuary’s hospital have suffered from some type of human-related injury, including car collisions, fishing line entanglement, illegal gunshots, electrocutions, poisonings, and attacks by domestic pets.
The Sanctuary has over 100,000 visitors each year who participate in the many environmental programs, tours, and exhibits which are suitable for all ages. Programs include nature walks and night walks, wildlife encounter programs, wildlife feeding exhibits, story time, summer camp, and a Junior Naturalist Program.
The Busch Wildlife Sanctuary’s wildlife hospital is available to receive injured animals Monday through Saturday from 8:00am to 5:00pm, and on Sundays from 9:00am to 12:00pm.
If you have found a sick, injured, or orphaned wild animal, call the Sanctuary for assistance at (561)-575-3399. If you need assistance after hours, follow the instructions on the Sanctuary’s answering service to reach a staff member on call.
