Services & Community Support
Anna Maria Island is very community oriented and family friendly. The farther north you go on the Island the more it feels like you are walking back into time. To get to the heart of this community you must get involved in wildlife, the Chamber, the community center and outreach to those who have needs both on and off of the Island. One of my passions is the Wildlife rescue, rehab and release in Bradenton Beach better known as Wildlife, Inc. Education & Rehabilitation Center. I have put in many hours feeding babies, cleaning cages and tending to the injured. When the need would arise I would assist in rescues. I have had the privilege of witnessing three turtle crawls and have seen the miracle of these babies crawling out of their nest and heading to the water as though they had tiny compasses to guide them. This is the heartbeat of nature! And don’t get me started on our glorious sunsets. It is a celebration every night on the beach and our sunrises are awesome to experience as well! We have the best of all worlds!
The only downer here is that it is difficult to plan a vacation to another destination because I live in paradise!
