Meeting the needs of wild animals in dire situations

When native wild animals are injured or orphaned, licensed rehabilitators restore them to health and release them back where they were found - when possible. With the never-ending development in Florida, animals are often found in places that inappropriate for their eventual release. That's where we come in.
Since 1998, Forest Animal Rescue has worked with wildlife rehabilitators across the state of Florida to provide safe, protected land for the release of native wildlife. In the absence of human interference, they can re-acclimate to life in the wild on their own terms.

COORDINATING FOR THE RescUE OF Captive Wildlife from Abuse or Exploitation

Captive wild animals that have been confiscated by authorities, used in research, abandoned to starve or have been attempted pets that failed because of their wild nature - they require lifelong care at an accredited sanctuary

Rehabilitation and Release of Wild Black Bears

Orphaned or injured wild bear cubs are nurtured and rehabilitated with minimal human interaction so that they learn to thrive on their own and can be released back into the wild.
