Mixon Fruit Farms & Wildlife Education & Rehabilitation Center Inc.
Through a unique agreement with Mixon Fruit Farms and Wildlife Education & Rehabilitation Center Inc., we keep several animals at Mixon Fruit Farms for educating the public as part of the Mixon Fruit Farm tour. Of these animals some are exotic non-native to Florida and cannot be released, others are permanently injured and cannot be release while others are too domesticated to be released.
Several times a day our Rescue Volunteer Damen Hurd who is also an employee of Mixon Fruit Farms provides educational tours of the Mixon Fruit Farm groves which includes a stop off at the Wildlife Education & Rehabilitation Center Inc. area where we have several large cages housing our educational animals. Damen provides a 20 minute educational seminar where he removes the animals from their cages and even allows tour visitors to touch some of the animals. Damen also provides the care and feeding of these animals as a volunteer duty.
