Introduction to the Sanctuary:
Founded in 1994 by the Peter W. Busch Family Foundation, the Busch Wildlife Sanctuary is a non-profit organization dedicated to the protection and conservation of Florida's wildlife and natural resources. The Sanctuary provides free comprehensive medical and rehabilitative care to over 2,000 sick, injured and orphaned wild animals annually. The ultimate goal is to return recovered patients to their natural habitats.
In addition, the Sanctuary's education center offers a variety of environmental presentations, exhibits, and nature tours. Over 50,000 children and adults each year participate in these fascinating educational programs.
In 1998, the Busch Wildlife Sanctuary, in partnership with the Loxahatchee River District, created an environmental learning center and wildlife refuge. The Sanctuary is nestled on five acres within a 160 acre tract of land owned by the District. This property includes cypress wetland, pine flatwoods, and fresh water ponds.
Visitors to the Busch Wildlife Sanctuary will have the unique opportunity to observe Florida's natural habitats and wildlife. We invite you to share with us these precious natural resources.
