Overlooking Charlotte Harbor at Ponce de Leon Park Punta Gorda, the Peace River Wildlife Center Dedicated to the rescue, care, protection and preservation of native small wildlife.
Working to protect our native Florida wildlife through rehabilitation, education and conservation efforts.
Peace River Wildlife Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating southwest Florida’s native wildlife.
We admit injured and orphaned birds, mammals and reptiles and provide necessary medical treatment to aid recovery and re-release into their natural environment.
Patients which are deemed non-releasable reside here at the center, where the public can learn about and see first-hand the wide variety of birds and mammals that co-inhabit our area.
We are open to the public 7 days a week 365 days a year from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm.
Sick or injured wildlife can be dropped off from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm daily.
Admission is free but donations are greatly appreciated.
