Wordless Wednesday: Caring for Florida Wildlife in Punta Gorda
Last week I had the opportunity to take a behind-the-scenes tour of Peace River Wildlife Center in Punta Gorda, Fla. The nonprofit organization is supported 100 percent by donations and do an amazing job nurturing Florida’s native wildlife back to health and caring for those orphaned for whatever reason.
Wildlife receives tender care with the intention of being returned to their natural habitat but if for whatever reason they can’t return to the wild, the animals will have a permanent home at the Center. During my visit, I saw injured and orphaned wildlife being cared for and also saw wild and native birds hanging out.
Enjoy these snapshots.
