Reviews for Back To Nature Wildlife Inc
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.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
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.
