Exotic Animals


As a non-profit corporation, the St. Augustine Wild Reserve has created a rescue center for unwanted exotic animals. When many owners discover that exotic animals do not fit into their lives, this is when the Reserve steps in.  As an alternate option to euthanasia, the Reserve will gladly give these exotic animals a well cared for and loving home. Ultimately, their goal is to educate the public about exotic animals and the intense care that comes with them when deciding to own one to prevent future animal abuse.

The St. Augustine Wild Reserve offers tours Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays at 2 pm, by appointment only. Due to animal safety reasons The St. Augustine Wild Reserve is not open to the public, but are happy to offer 1 ½ - 2-hour tours at appointed times. During the tours, the tour guides will explain their backstory and general information about each of the animals. They allow guests to come 5-10 feet of the animals but don't allow touching animals for safety. On the tour, guests will meet rare tigers and many more.

What Guests Say About The Reserve


The Best

One of the BEST wildlife sanctuaries we've visited to date. Animals are well cared for and clearly happy. I highly recommend supporting this not-for-profit reserve by donating and/or visiting.
Amazing!

What an experience. Guides are all dedicated volunteers who give lots of information.Can't praise them enough: friendly and knowledgeable. Truly the number 1 experience in the city.
Beautiful Animals
 

Unlike most places where you go and see animals in cages and feel sorry for them, this place seems to be the opposite. The volunteers seem to genuinely care for the animals in their care. Beautiful animals and well worth the heat.
Awesome
 
Awesome place to visit. You get to be up close to some great animals that you would never imagine getting that close to. Staff was very good people, with a lot of information about the animals and truly care for the animals.
Loved It!

It was so amazing, the men and women that help these wildlife need a medal. My daughter has always wanted to see a white tiger, she teared up when we had to leave. Wonderful place to visit. LOVED IT!!!!!!
Great Staff!
 

Amazing tour! If you want to see big cats up close this is the place. These people are doing great work with unwanted and abused exotic cats, and a few other animals
