Mother Nature's ally: Hammock Bay naturalist proves that development doesn't have to be destructive

Down the road, the E.O. Wilson Biophilia Center is rehabilitating injured animals. Regularly, they release them in Hammock Bay , where they will be safe. Wyatt turns these events into a learning experience, inviting the public to witness the animal release while sharing info.

"We've released owls, hawks, flying squirrels, even an eagle," he said.

Not everybody gets to work toward a cause they're passionate about, and Wyatt certainly realizes how lucky he is to get to do what he loves every day.

"It is absolutely a dream job," he said. "Lots of people have trouble finding things they were meant to do. This is what I was meant to do."  

WANT TO GO? Join Naturalist Joe Wyatt for a nature walk around Hammock Bay 9 a.m. the first Saturday of every month. For more information about Hammock Bay and upcoming events, visit
