Who We Are

The South Florida Wildlife Center was founded in 1969 for the purpose of caring for native wildlife in the Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties. We are the highest-volume wildlife hospital and rehabilitation facility in Florida treating between 6,000 – 9,000 animals per year from nearly 300 different species.

We are an independently operated non-profit 501(c)(3) charity that operates solely on donations. We are not affiliated with or supported by any government or agency.

South Florida Wildlife Center is a wildlife trauma care hospital and rehabilitation facility, staffed by certified veterinary, animal care, and education professionals. Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and release injured and orphaned animals, educate the public about environmental issues, and foster a peaceful co-existence with wildlife in our local communities.

Beyond our lifesaving rescue and rehabilitation programs, we are a trusted resource that assists our local communities in a variety of ways. We provide educational programming to local schools, community agencies, and youth programs. We provide wildlife rescue training for local municipality agencies including law enforcement and fire rescue.

Wildlife Education Ambassador Program


Our Wildlife Education Ambassador team consists of reptiles, mammals, and birds that all help to enrich our environmental educational experiences. They create memorable and valuable interactions by providing hands-on learning opportunities to inspire further curiosity about the natural world.

The animals at SFWC could not survive in the wild, so the Center is their forever home. Given the highest standards of care and training, they are comfortable and confident educators. Visitors can learn what a snake feels like, how a turtle eats, and why omnivores like Opossums are essential in the wild. Our Animal Ambassadors help teach about why protecting habitats or landscaping with native plants helps to protect nature and wildlife.

The Animal Ambassadors at SFWC assist us in fulfilling our mission to educate the public about environmental issues and foster a peaceful co-existence with wildlife in our local communities.
