Busch Wildlife Sanctuary

The Busch Wildlife Sanctuary is an incredible safe haven for the wild animals of south Florida. Here you will find bald eagles, Florida panthers, red foxes, turtles, snakes, bobcats, owls and so much more. These stunning animals make their way to Busch if they have become injured or misplaced among a suburban area. The staff at Busch Wildlife prides themselves on taking great care of these creatures with a goal to get them back into their natural habitat. What makes its fun for kids and adults alike is the unique experience of being up close and personal with them.  Everyday there is a different activity-taking place at Busch Wildlife, from hikes, to scavenger hunts, kayak tours and bird watching. http://www.buschwildlife.org
