One of the distinct enhancements at the new Treasure Coast Wildlife Center will be the development of the nature trails with the animals themselves seen in their natural habitat. Larger and more naturalistic enclosures will be spaced along these trails. Alligators, for instance, may be exhibited in a Wetland setting and Great Horned Owls in pinewoods. Thus the opportunity to experience and learn about the animals themselves will be put into context with the wild world around us. Interpretive naturalists will provide information as appropriate, but the setting itself will also allow reflection, contemplation, and absorption of both the cognitive and the emotional impacts.

No facility of this kind currently exists on the Treasure Coast. Zoological parks exhibit primarily exotic, non-native, animals, and are commonly landscaped with exotic plants. State and national parks and preserves provide access to native, wild areas, but wild creatures — especially unusual or endangered species — rarely make themselves visible. The planned Treasure Coast Wildlife Center, combines native wild animals with native wild areas, and provides unique educational and experiential opportunities available nowhere else.
