Living in BallenIsles Country Club, Palm Beach Gardens, affords you all Palm Beach County has to offer. In addition to BallenIsles being a premiere country club with three championship golf courses and Grand Slam Tennis Center, it is nestled within 1,300 pristine acres. Amongst the luxury custom estate homes, courtyard homes and villas, one will find local wildlife.

In an effort to preserve, protect, foster and respect the wildlife within the community, members have taken an active part by creating the BallenIsles Wildlife Foundation.   The BallenIsles Wildlife Foundation is a 501© (3) nonprofit organization funded by donations and led by dedicated volunteer residents.

It is not unusual to see a neighborhood dog ever so gently entertaining baby ducklings.  It is said that foxes have been sighted in the community as well, referring to the four-legged kind (lest anyone be confused). Foxes are well adapted to living in and around humans.   The Foundation notes that foxes are shy, nocturnal creatures that are not a general threat to humans or pets.  They prey on mice, rats and rabbit. It is never a good idea to feed foxes.
 
Store your trash securely, leave pet food inside and keep birdfeeders free of spilled seed to reduce the attraction of your home.  Allow the beautiful wildlife to enjoy the natural surroundings of undeveloped preserve.

BallenIsles Wildlife Foundation is working in partnership with various local wildlife organizations such as Busch Wildlife and Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League.  Wildlife emergencies are generally a mishap, fledgling falling from a tree, turtle struck by a passing motorist, or a crane being hit by an errant golf ball.  Relationships with these invaluable partners allow BallenIsles Wildlife Foundation succeed in preserving and protecting the wildlife within the community. For more information on BallenIsles homes and the wildlife foundation please call Abe Kamor, BallenIsles Exclusive Agent for Waterfront Properties and Club Communitites at 561-222-2377.
