Take a guided tour of St. Augustine Wild Reserve, a rescue center for abandoned and confiscated exotic animals, from tiny birds to African lions and tigers. You'll be introduced to each of the species through basic biology facts and individual life stories. You'll have a chance to get up close with most of the animals, including wild cats, wolves, hyenas, numerous bird species, and a very rare golden tabby tiger. Depending on the tour, you may witness animal feedings, tiger bubble baths, or both. Reserve your spot as early in advance as possible to ensure availability.

Phenomenal experience!! You will never get this close to exotic animals. They are well cared for and clearly loved by their caregivers. All of the animals were surrendered or rescued/absolutely no breeding. The animals are beautiful. You learn a lot. My sister and I were visiting St Augustine and are so glad we came here.
What a wonderful group of caregivers to these precious and beautiful creatures. Karen was a knowledgeable and very personable guide. These caregivers follow the guidelines for humane capativity for these animals and go beyond to ensure that these animals have a high quality rest of their lives. I do wish these animals had more space to roam but again I want to stress the spaces meet guidelines...we just need more people to support this organization to give these animals what they deserve like their habitats. Please support this organization.
