SANIBEL, Fla. — For the entire month of November, Fox Four is celebrating the Taste of the Islands.
More than 30 local restaurants are participating in the Clinic for Rehabilitation of Wildlife's 39th annual fundraiser.
It's a cause that tastes good and feels even better benefiting Southwest Florida wildlife.
"We want you to meet our animal ambassadors, support our restaurants, and really just enjoy the entire month of November," said Alison Charney Husse, Exec. Director.
However, CROW's Taste of the Islands promises more than a great time. For 39 years, it's helped them save sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife.
She says it runs 365 days a year, and by the end of this one, they're estimating a record total of 6,000 patients.
"We have people that bring them into us and they’re saying I don’t even know if it’s still alive and it looks like it’s dead or about to die. To see one animal go from debilitated and down to being released back into its natural environment is fantastic," said Albright. "
As heartbreaking as that sounds, there is a way to make sure CROW has more good wildlife stories to tell than bad.
All November, people can purchase their taste passports and taste items at 31 participating restaurants.
The proceeds from celebrating Taste of the Islands goes to stocking food, supplies, and medication to save wildlife in need.
