For more than twelve years, Wild Florida’s mission has been to provide an unforgettable Everglades experience that promotes a connection with animals while inspiring education and conservation. Unfortunately, we are sometimes faced with unforeseen situations and circumstances that require an immediate response to ensure the continued safety of visitors, staff, neighbors, and, most importantly, animals in our care. In September 2022, a new rhino began to pose an imminent danger to the park at large, and after consultation with leadership and Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation.
The start of the school year is quickly approaching and we're excited to partner with the Education Foundation of Osceola County to collect school supplies for local students. From August 1 through August 13, Osceola, Orange, Brevard, Polk and Seminole residents who donate new pencils, headphones, highlighters and other needed school supplies will receive free lettuce to feed Leroy and Walter, our giraffes inside our Drive-thru Safari.
It doesn't matter whether you're an Android or Apple user, it's safe to say that we all love to use emojis. Consider them the cherry on top of your status update sundae. So whether you're posting a photo to Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, throw a filter on your photo and add any – or all – of these emojis when you visit Wild Florida! (Be sure to use our official hashtags, too: #WildFlorida!)
