While you may know it for luxury, South and West Palm Beach, Miami flair and the world-famous Disney parks, Florida has a wilder side, too. Yes, Miami, but also the plethora of wildlife sanctuaries and rescues. Take a walk on the wild side visiting resident rescues and National Wildlife Refuges.
What may sound more like a school mascot than a National Wildlife Refuge, Florida Panther is actually a wildlife reprieve for endangered species like the puma. See the beautiful big cats, Florida Black Bear and white-tailed deer in a safe environment along the park’s two hiking trails.
Pay a visit to the non-profit, donation-based organization of Busch Wildlife Sanctuary, which allows visitors to come by and see rescued wildlife along habitat trails. While some will be on the mend as this is a working wildlife hospital, others are temporary guests and residents of the sanctuary.
Watch resident rescued big cats enjoy feeding time and playing together in an oversized watering hole at the Catty Shack Ranch.
