Pet Amnesty Day

Pet Amnesty Day March 12, 2011

In an effort to keep unwanted exotic pets out of Florida’s native habitats, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) and Zoo Miami will host Nonnative Pet Amnesty Day on March 12 at Zoo Miami.

Among the 70 exotic pets turned in during last year’s event were eight Burmese pythons, 16 red-eared sliders, two parrots and one monkey.
