Cape Coral Friends of Wildlife is a volunteer organization whose purpose is to preserve and enhance the habitats of protected wildlife species and to educate the community about Cape Coral’s wildlife resources

Some of our major projects are:

Starter  Burrow Program

Habitat loss is of major concern for the Burrowing Owls in Cape Coral.  Learn how you can install a starter burrow on your property and attract this species of special concern to your home.

Staking Days

Once a week the “Burrow Patrol” goes out into the community to monitor and maintain the nearly 2500 Burrowing Owl Burrows in Cape Coral.  Join this fun group of volunteers and do your part to help the Burrowing Owls. Call 239-980-2593 for more information, or email us at contact@ccfriendsofwildlife.org
