Coral World has been rehabilitating local wildlife since its opening in 1978. As our facility has grown, so has our rehabilitation programs and capabilities. Decades of research and experience with both marine and terrestrial animal rescues have also enhanced our capabilities to help injured and stranded animals.
Our response team is comprised of on-staff exotic animal veterinarians, veterinary technicians, biologists, and marine mammal experts. We also have built professional connections with several facilities throughout the US and the Caribbean which broadens our access to true experts in different species. This allows us to care for a large variety of wildlife and ensure that each case receives the best possible care, and the highest level of success to be re-introduced to the wild.
Animals in rehabilitation are overseen directly day to day by our veterinary technician who provides their daily care, therapy, and nutritional requirements. When needed, outside diagnostics are performed with local veterinarians, as well as local physicians!
Our veterinary technician also functions as our animal emergency first responder fields reports of injured, sick or stranded wildlife all over the island. We have also assisted animals on other islands as well, including the British Virgin Islands.
Coral World is deeply committed to conservation of our marine and terrestrial animals in any way possible. Both short and long-term rehabilitation is expensive, time consuming, and often exhausting. Our rehabilitation team as well as our park spare nothing to ensure the health and success of our rehabilitation animals.
Join the Conservation Heroes of the VI today. By purchasing one of our Conservation packages you can help support the rescue, rehab and release of stranded marine animals in the Virgin Islands. All of the proceeds go towards things like transportation, medical care and food for injured or stranded wildlife.
