Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!

The Emerald Coast Wildlife Refuge Zoological Park in Crestview is not a normal zoo. At the park, fennec foxes — a type of fox with light brown fur, a small head and large ears — rest peacefully in their enclosures. Children can hand-feed muntjac deer — a small, funny-looking deer with fanged teeth like a dog

A permanent home

The Emerald Coast Wildlife Refuge is hoping a vote from the county will help them secure a permanent home in Holley to utilize as a rehabilitation facility/educational center for the animals they rescue on a weekly basis.
