Back to Nature has been caring for wild animals for more than 27 years, with a mission to rescue, rehabilitate and release injured and orphaned Florida native wildlife. As a nonprofit wildlife refuge, they work around the clock to care for the animals and return them back to the wild.
Eagles Roost has been home to Back to Nature since 2014. The 232-acre conservation land near Lake Nona was purchased through the Orange County Green PLACE program. Through a partnership, Back to Nature operates a successful rehabilitation center on 20 acres of the property and provides on-site educational programs. Eagles Roost, which is seven times larger than the former Back to Nature location off East Colonial, features natural wetlands, a wildlife walk and an observation pier at Lake Hart.
