11 exotic animals you can meet at our Gator Park

Posted by Sam Haught on Jun 27, 2019 3:55:51 PM

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.

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.
