In 1981 a festival of food and fun was created to support the work done by CROW. The festival is Taste of the Islands and the event has grown more popular each year as Chefs from Sanibel & Captiva Restaurants compete with each other to win the peoples choice awards in many different food categories. This outdoor event features live music more than 20 different restaurants.
Taste of the Islands is a heavily attended yearly event and serves as one of CROW major fund raisers.
Their mission is saving wildlife through care, education and collaboration. Their work is never ending and none of their patients have health insurance.
