We are committed to our Mission:
Amid all of the uncertainty and challenges, we sincerely hope that you and your loved ones are well. It is no secret that we love wildlife.
While we are closed to the public, we are over-joyed that we can continue our mission of wildlife rescue, rehab, release and education. The Sanctuary is continuing to accept sick, injured and orphaned wildlife and also released a few rehabilitated patients. THANK YOU to everyone who has donated to keep the mission going!
See below for some updates.
We had 83 animal intakes this week!
Our 4 woman hospital team is working hard to accept and care for animals without the help of our normal volunteers.
You can still be involved with the Sanctuary on social media. Join us for our virtual programs on Facebook and get some educational activities!

In this unprecedented time, everything is being impacted in a way that never could have been expected. At the Busch Wildlife Sanctuary, the safety and well-being of our staff, volunteers, supporters, animals, and the public is our utmost priority.
For the public:
We are taking the recommendations of the Governor and the CDC very seriously. Due to the threat of the COVID-19 virus we will be closing the Sanctuary to the public as of Tuesday, March 17 until further notice. All upcoming events will be cancelled/postponed.
*If you have purchased tickets for these events, please consider donating the cost of the ticket or email us for a voucher for a future event.
PLEASE – If you are in a position to help the sanctuary make it through this difficult time, we would appreciate anything you can give. Loss of revenue from daily donations and education programming amounts to $1,000 - $1,500 per day. These funds are necessary for Busch Wildlife Sanctuary to continue our mission. Being a nonprofit, we rely on public support. During this time, we are in need of your help and support to care for the animals at the Sanctuary and incoming patients in the wildlife hospital. If you are in a position to help the Sanctuary through this time, please consider it. We are expecting donations to drop due to the economic state of the country, and will need the support more than ever. Click Here
For our staff/volunteers/animals:
In addition to the closing of the Sanctuary to the public, we are also implementing proactive precautions for our essential staff who will still be coming in to care for the animals. Volunteers who are normally scheduled will be asked to stay home for their well-being.
While the Sanctuary is closed, we will continue to accept injured, sick, or orphaned wildlife to our hospital. Please call ahead (561-575-3399) before you come to drop-off animals, as we will have new protocols in place. During this time, our regular volunteer rescuers will not be available. If there is a situation involving wildlife that is a threat to public safety, please call and we will do our best to assist with the limited team.
Thank you for your support and understanding during this time.
