Punta Gorda/Englewood Beach is full of a colorful array of native wildlife, no more beautiful than the different species of birds that call the area home. Callie Stahl first fell in love with the beautiful beaches and awe-inspiring outdoor activities found throughout Florida’s Charlotte Harbor Gulf Island Coast. However, it was the variety of birds, as well as reptiles, fish, and mammals, that helped Callie make Punta Gorda/Englewood Beach her new home. Working at the Peace River Wildlife Center, Callie loves educating visitors and locals on the different animals in the center and where they can find them in the wild.
