Help Rebuild the Wonder Gardens!

$11,730 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 103 people in 9 months
Everglades Wonder Gardens, an 80-year old cultural icon in Bonita Springs FL was recently devastated by Hurricane Irma. The old specimen trees and palms were snapped and flattened, damaging many of the exhibits of rescue birds and reptiles. While the animals were safely housed in a single secure structure and well cared for throughout the storm, their enclosures need to be rebuilt and planted for them to return outdoors. This greenspace has been a place where generations have come to enjoy natural beauty and wildlife, with a non-profit organization formed to sustain it. Please consider contributing to help us continue to care for rescue animals and to rebuild the gardens and exhibits so this special place can be enjoyed by generations to come.

Thank you for all your support and generous donations.
It has been nearly 2 months of recovery, by clearing debris and fixing exhibits. It was finally the day we were all waiting for the saving of the historic and iconic trees. We uprighted one giant silk-floss and three banyans that over a half century old.

We continue to need your support as we sustained over $100,000 in damages and loss two months of earned income from ticket and gift shop sales. Nearly 80% of our operating budget comes from earned revenue.

Thank you!
