Everglades Outpost

A wildlife rescue, and an up-close way
to learn about the Everglades.



Each animal has
a rescue story!

Each story offers a different
view into the Everglades.



Meet Bob Freer

The Wildlife Rescue is Bob’s home.
He and his wife Barbara live
with their rescued animals.

Our mission

We take in injured animals, rehabilitate them, and release them back into the wild. We educate the public about the Everglades.

Why it matters

We believe in the dignity of every animal. Every animal deserves our love and respect. Every injured animal should have a place to get well.

Your experience

See educational wildlife shows. Take an airboat ride. Meet the animals. Experience the Everglades up close and personal.

At the Outpost, each of us
has a rescue story:
