The primary mission of the Amos Rehabilitation Keep (ARK) is to rescue and rehabilitate sick and injured birds, sea turtles, terrestrial turtles, and tortoises found along the South Texas coast and to return them to their native habitat.
Tours are limited to 15 people. Tours are entirely outdoors, last for approximately 45 mintues and require some walking. Tours may be cancelled due to inclement weather and during holidays. Restrooms and water are not available on site.
Reservations are required. Tour participant fee is $7. Children under three are free. All registration fees go directly to the rehabilitation efforts of the ARK. Due to animal permits, all participants need to register. If you have a child age 3 and younger, please register using the Children 3 years and younger option.
Volunteers play an important part in this mission by helping to feed and care for the wildlife. To ensure the successful release of as many animals as possible, the ARK staff work with veterinarians and other wildlife management organizations to use the most up-to-date rehabilitation techniques. The ARK also strives to educate the public about the potential impacts of population growth and urban development on coastal wildlife.
