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.
While we love taking people on Orlando airboat rides and showing off the headwaters of the Everglades, there's more to Wild Florida than being a top Orlando attraction. Our mission also invovles promoting a connection with animals and teaching about conservation. With that being said, we aim to educate guests on not just the animals native to Florida, but those found all over the world. That's why, in this blog, we're going to highlight some of the animals found both in other parts of the world and in our Gator Park.
In case you've never been to our Gator Park, we have more than 200 animals that call Wild Florida "home." Half of our park consists of exotic animals such as two-toed sloths, ring-tailed lemurs, watusis, and zebras to give locals a chance to learn about animals located around the world. The other half of our Gator Park showcases all the animals native to Florida that provides visitors from different countries (and maybe even a few locals) a chance to learn something new about Florida's ecosystem. In this blog, we'll give you a brief overview of eight Florida animals you can meet during your.
We're known for our Florida adventure tours that can take you from exploring the Everglades at high speeds to stepping inside the exhibit of a 1,000 pound alligator. But those are just at the tip of the ice burg in terms of everything else you can do at Wild Florida. So, if you're asking yourself, "What can I do at Wild Florida?", look no further. Animal lovers – Do you dream of working with animals all day long? We can turn that dream into a reality with our animal keeper for a day program.
