Why giving the gift of a Florida experience will trump all holiday gifts

Posted by Sam Haught on Dec 3, 2017 5:49:39 PM

Now that Thanksgiving has passed, we enter the thick of the holiday season. It's a time for breaking out the holiday lights, baking cookies for Santa, and making sure you get gifts for everyone on your gift list. However, despite all the images and videos your friends might share of new products, you might have some reservations on whether that's the gift you really want to give. Well, actually, research shows that the best thing you can gift this holiday season might not be a gift at all. (A material one, at least.) In this blog, we'll talk about what research says about experience gifts and why you should give the gift of a Florida experience...

With Florida being home to more than 350 species of wildlife, it's doubtful that you'll be able to see all of them on just one airboat ride.

Here's a sampling of species (21, to be exact) that you can see on Everglades airboat tours.

How Wild Florida is preparing for Hurricane Irma

Posted by Wild Florida on Sep 7, 2017 8:46:00 AM

Native Floridians are no strangers to hurricanes. But that doesn't necessarily make severe storms any less scary. While many people may have the option to evacuate before the storm, that doesn't always mean pets or animals can get away, too. So, as we stock up on water, batteries and canned goods for our homes, we thought it would be important to share the measures we take to ensure the safety of our animals and the Wild Florida facility in preparation for Hurricane Irma. 

Walking through the Gator and Wildlife Park, you'll notice a fair amount of vegetation inside and around the exhibits, as well as the fact that all animal enclosures are made of wood. At Wild Florida, we go above and beyond the state-required space and basic features an exhibit should have, providing a more comfortable and natural enclosure for the animals in our Wildlife Park. But these extra measures don't make the enclosures hurricane proof. So, as our staff does a walk-through of the park, they make a note of any dead trees in or near exhibits that should be removed prior to a tropical storm or hurricane.
