General Information
Florida Panther
Florida Panther (Puma concolor coryi).

Located on the grounds of the Loxahatchee River District, the partnership between the District and Busch Wildlife Sanctuary dates back to 1997. This District continues its support of this important community and environmental resource through support and expansion of Busch's program and facility.

Through that support, Busch Wildlife Sanctuary continues to serve as an injured wildlife care facility dedicated to bringing wildlife and people together to foster awareness of the value and diversity of Florida's natural resources. Here you will find a unique opportunity to experience native Florida wildlife and natural ecosystems up close. There is an education center with a resource library, an outdoor amphitheater, and an animal hospital which treats over 4,000 injured animals annually.

Busch Wildlife Sanctuary, along with the Loxahatchee River District, is dedicated to providing learning experiences about Florida's wildlife through tours of the facility, as well as off-site programs which reach thousands of school children each year. All of the resident animals at the Sanctuary were injured or orphaned and due to the severity of their injuries can not be returned to the wild. Sanctuary residents range from the American bald eagle, Florida panther, American alligator, great-horned owl, and many more.
