Not even half an hour north from the heart of the St. Augustine’s historic district lies a wild world. St. Augustine Wild Reserve is a habitat for fascinating exotic pets who needed new homes. Deborah Warrick, zoologist and the founder of the Reserve, has rescued hundreds of wild animals that started their lives as pets in people’s homes, and she now provides care for them at this reserve.
Once some realize that a wild animal is not exactly behaving as they expected and does not fit their lifestyle, they have a choice of giving them to Deborah and the St. Augustine Wild Reserve. If you visit the Reserve, you will have a chance to see tigers, bears, wolfs, lions, egrets, coatis, and much more. The goal of the Reserve is to provide a home for these animals and to educate people about what it means to have an exotic animal at home.
