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.
CROW stands for the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife. This Sanibel island wildlife clinic care for animals from around the state in need of long term care.
