There was not a lot to see here but it is inexpensive, and for a good cause. It would be great if there was a way to see the animals that they are rehabilitating.

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.

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.
