With continued growth throughout Southwest Florida, we’re challenged to safely coexist with the wildlife that loves our unique and beautiful ecosystem.
Coyotes are grabbing the headlines, but SWFL is also home to protected species such as panthers, bears and gopher tortoises. From carrying an air horn to shifting your walking schedule, there are many simple solutions for reducing animal encounters while protecting your family, pets and home.
Shy Wolf Sanctuary offers a comprehensive educational program to help residents protect their children and pets, without endangering wildlife.
