How it started:

Bob Freer and his wife Barbara created the Everglades Outpost Wildlife Rescue in 1991. The Outpost is where they live, together with their animals.

How it continues:

Today a new generation at the Everglades Outpost is  ready to carry on the legacy.

How do we differ from a zoo?

We take in hurt and injured wildlife, rehabilitate it, and release it back to the wild. Most of the animals at the Everglades Outpost have been confiscated from illegal, traumatic and abusive situations. We are different from a zoo in that we are a non-profit run by idealistic volunteers who love and want to help animals.

How do we Help animals?

Our rehabilitation facility provides medical care and treatment to sick and injured animals. Whenever possible, the animal is released to its natural habitat. The animals that cannot be returned to the wild are placed in suitable homes, or remain here under our care.

How can you help this effort?

We are a non-profit 501c(3) educational organization. We are all volunteers. We rely on friends like you to come here to experience the Everglades Outpost and help with tax-deductible donations, so we can take care of the animals, and continue to improve and expand our habitats for them.
