Calusa Nature Center and Planetarium has educated and inspired thousands for fifty years. But now we face the most uncertain time in our history. The coronavirus pandemic has forced us to shut our doors and cancel fundraisers, which effectively shuts off all our income. We don't receive any taxpayer money and rely on admission fees and fundraisers to care for our animals, pay our employees and to keep the lights on. Please consider a donation to our Emergency Operating Fund. Your donation will provide critical support and help ensure that the Calusa Nature Center and Planetarium can continue to feed and care for the many animals who rely on us and help team members through this unprecedented national emergency. Sponsor an animal today. Your donation will help pay for the food and care for these animals for one month:
