The program has two parts: the daily presentation in the Visitor Education Center (topics vary, click here for the schedule of daily presentation topics) and then a guided tour through treatment areas of the hospital, concluding on our rehabilitation grounds.
CROW’s hospital tours show guests what it takes for the medical staff to rehabilitate its wildlife patients. Because the patient load fluctuates throughout the year CROW cannot guarantee what species, treatments or staff may be visible at the time of the tour. While on the tour guests may see patients receiving bandage changes, bottle feedings, surgery, physical therapy, etc., however, it is not guaranteed.
Individuals who are uncomfortable with visuals pertaining to an emergency hospital are encouraged to think carefully about reservation. Due to the nature of CROW’s hospital tours, it is recommended that guests are at least 13 years or older.
Our Wildlife Walk program is Gold Level Certified through the Florida Society for Ethical Ecotourism (FL SEE).
