Reviews for Back To Nature Wildlife Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

Back To Nature is a wonderful organization with an amazing staff and volunteer group. They put an incredible amount of heart and passion into their mission of rescuing, raising, rehabilitating and releasing over 3,000 animals each year, which is a 24/7 responsibility. On top of this mission, they also serve as a permanent home to the animals that are unable to be released back to the wild due to their injuries. These animals serve as educational ambassadors that Back to Nature uses to educate the public about Florida's native wildlife. Visitors can see these educational ambassadors up close by visiting the refuge and taking a stroll along it's wildlife walk. Community involvement is also important to the organization and they hold many events each year that are designed to bring the community out to the refuge for a variety of fun and family-oriented activities. They even host a farmers market each Saturday morning. Back To Nature is an excellent choice for a local weekend outing! I am lucky to have the opportunity to volunteer for such an amazing group!

Back to Nature Wildlife Refuge rescues over 3,000 animals per year. They teach the community how to interact with nature and about nature. There are animal ambassadors that people can visit and learn about. An amazing organization, well loved by the community, with very dedicated staff and volunteers! Well worth a visit!

Back to Nature is an amazing organization. The dedicated staff and volunteers are absolutely devoted to rescuing, raising, rehabilitating and release injured and orphaned Florida native wildlife. They have a great variety of non-releasable animals known as educational ambassadors that help educate the community about our native wildlife. Take a stroll down the wildlife walk and you can see and learn about other species such as ring-tailed lemurs and even an arctic fox. What a great place to visit.

Dedicated staff and volunteers do an excellent job rehabilitating and releasing wildlife and educating the community about wildlife. They have a fabulous facility located on over 200 acres of conservation land. Where can you go to see a bobcat up close? You can here, they have 2! You can see the animal ambassadors (non-releasable wildlife residents) in their habitats, learn about wildlife, hike to Lake Hart or on the numerous trails on surrounding properties- Eagles Roost and Split Oak. Very family friendly and the kids will love it! I admire their dedication.

Working with animals including exotics for the last 10 years has allowed me to see a wide range of facilities. Back To Nature is one of the top facilities that I have come across in the state of Florida. Their dedication is unsurpassed in the rehab field. There facility is top notch.

I adore this group. They are very knowledgeable and dedicated to rescuing wild animals and releasing them back into the wild. They have a core group of fabulous volunteers and graciously teach schoolchildren about Florida's indigenous wild animals. If I lived closer, I'd volunteer there in a heartbeat.

I brought a baby armadillo in to the rescue yesterday and they took him right away to someone who has had experience with these delicate creatures. Later in the day our dog found his brother and again I drove him out to the rescue and they took him in quickly. I saw hard working volunteers who care very much about the babies and adult animals in their care. This is one of the oldest wildlife rescues in our area and I am thankful they were there for these and the other Spring babies.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the rescue of baby animals who have lost their mothers.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

give them a bigger facility with more volunteers.
