January 2017 Everglades Outpost Update
The Everglades Outpost takes in hurt and injured wildlife, rehabilitates it, and releases it back to the wild. Most of the animals at the Everglades Outpost have been confiscated from illegal, traumatic and abusive situations. The Everglades Outpost is different from a zoo in that it is a non-profit run by idealistic volunteers who love and want to help animals.
Here are two recent snapshots of some of our activities.
