As a former wild life rehabilitation person, I have nothing but respect for The Coral Springs Center & Wildlife Hospital. My son and I visited frequently with our Mom's club friends to enjoy the permanent residents that are unable to be re-released into the wild. If you have a love & understanding for the native species in our community than you can easily recognize how important their contribution to our community is! Rehabbing injured or abandoned animals is not for everyone. It's very time consuming, expensive & not an exact science. People who work with animals to help raise, rehabilitate & release them have such big hearts. I definitely suggest you bring your friends and family's to visit! And if you can, DONATE! They are most likely always in need of something & money ensures they are able to properly provide for our native species that deserve to share our community with us!

This facility is a much needed resource in our community. It provides not only a place to bring injured wildlife for rehabiliation but also educates the commmunity, both children and adults, about our environment and the animals that share our neighborhood. My children grew up attending many educational programs and when they were old enough, they volunteered. The nature center has been a wonderful place for our family and neighbors to work together, helping the animals that can not help themselves, and educating the next generation of children.

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

seeing my children grow up with a concern for and understanding of the contribution of all wildlife to the planet. I have seen injured birds, reptiles and other animals brought in, nursed back to health and released back into the wild where they belong.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

knowing that animals who would surely have died from their injuries, have the opportunity to recover and return to their native habitats. I have learned a lot about the variety of wildlife in my area through the educational programs.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very friendly, informative and dedicated to the animals and making the nature center a success.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand the classroom facilities to offer more educational programs, add to the current wildlife hospital buiding so that more animals could be helped, & build permanent habitats for those animals whose injuries prevent them from being rereleased.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month

It has been a very heart-warming experience over the years to assist the staff and other volunteers at the nature center and wildlife hospital in helping injured native wildlife and baby wildlife. It is the greatest feeling of compassion when we release the 'recovered' animals back into the wild. I congratulate all of the other volunteers and staff who help the animals who can't help themselves.
