Wildlife Florida

Stroll the Museum’s elevated boardwalks and experience amazing living displays of native animals in their natural settings. Discover the rare Florida panther and red wolf, playful river otter, shy white-tailed deer, sleepy bears, tree climbing grey foxes, elusive alligator and other southern species.  Observe and appreciate these ambassadors from the wild who live or once lived in the Big Bend region. These animals would not survive in the wild; they were either raised in captivity or have limited abilities as a result of injury.

*Note: Thanks to your support, our bear habitat is currently being renovated! The bears will be off exhibit during this time, and work is expected to be completed later this fall. The renovations will include a new water feature that will greatly enhance our bears’ enrichment.
