Taste of the Off-Islands will take place the week prior to Taste of the Islands to generate support for recovering Sanibel and Captiva Island restaurants. How can you participate?

Taste of the Islands Restaurant and Community Partners
Thank you to our restaurant and community partners for dishing out delicious cuisine as they generously support CROW’s mission to save wildlife even as many of them are rebuilding themselves! We encourage you to visit as many as of these amazing restaurants and businesses as possible before, during and after our Taste Events from November 5th-19th. Thank you to all who participate and support our cause!

Do the CROW Crawl!
Don’t miss our CROW CRAWL on November 18! Walk, bike, drive, or take our FREE scheduled buses around to each restaurant and stop by CROW’s Visitor Education Center for games, presentations, beer and ice cream samples, and meet our animal ambassadors!
All proceeds from Taste of the Islands go directly towards our mission of saving wildlife. Even after Hurricane Ian, CROW never stopped caring for wildlife. Help us rebuild to continue our mission!
Taste and Crawl for CROW -
now more than ever!
The Taste of the Islands event was created to raise funds for a cause near and dear to the hearts of residents and visitors who love wildlife! The Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife – affectionately known as CROW – is located on Sanibel Island, Florida and this past year Hurricane Ian severely damaged the CROW campus. This teaching hospital and visitor education center is dedicated to saving wildlife through state-of-the-art veterinary care, research, education. and conservation medicine. Ian destroyed many of our rehabilitation enclosures and we are rebuilding stronger and with more resiliency for the future!
Whatever we can do to save wildlife is worth doing – and we love doing it together as a community! If it means having a fabulous time while tasting great food, crawling across beautiful Sanibel, Captiva and Southwest Florida with friends, and CROW-ing about our cause, all the better!
