Stroll the Museum's elevated boardwalks to view a zoo devoted exclusively to indigenous wildlife in their natural habitats. The display of native species in their natural settings is distinctive and has served as a model for other zoos around the nation.
Among the species living at the Museum are the Florida panther, the state's official mammal, and the rare red wolf, once extinct in the wild.
Many of the animals in the Wildlife Florida exhibit were either raised in captivity or are injured or orphaned individuals rescued by licensed wildlife rehabilitators. These animals are non-releasable; they would not survive in the wild.
