What We Do

We rescue, rehabilitate, and release sick, orphaned, or injured wildlife. This includes:

• Wild birds: owls, eagles, hawks, herons, cranes, and songbirds and more

• Wild mammals: possums, raccoons, squirrels, foxes, and armadillos and more

• Turtles and tortoises: gopher tortoises, sliders, snappers, and box turtles and more

• Reptiles: snakes and alligators and more

Essentially, if it is a native Florida species, we can help, or we can help you find someone who will.

Our Funding

We are entirely funded by your donations. We do not receive any federal or state aid for rescuing or rehabbing native Florida wildlife.

Our goals

Our goal is to reduce human impact on Florida’s native wildlife through rehabilitation, education, and teamwork.

  • PROTECT AND PRESERVE WILDLIFE

    Our volunteers respond to rescue calls in multiple counties. Rescues are then assessed and transported to either veterinarians or to our rehabilitation facility,

  • INCREASE COMMUNITY AWARENESS

    Owl's Nest volunteers attend community events to increase community awarenes about Florida's diverse wildlife.

  • EDUCATE THE PUBLIC

    Our volunteers attend classroom and other educational events to help increase public education about conservation.
