Trouper the Blind Raccoon Loves to Meet His Fans!

Do you have a small birthday party or family celebration coming up? Perhaps a fundraising event for your organization? Summer camp? You can have our four-legged friend, Trouper the Blind Raccoon and Dot come to you for an educational appearance. They follow CDC social distancing and mask recommendations.

Wildlife Rehabilitator Dorothy “Dot” Lee fought to save Trouper’s life after he was mistreated as a wild baby raccoon. Trouper is now a Federally Licensed Wildlife Ambassador for the Wildlife Education Project.

Trouper and Dot love to travel around Southwest Florida to ensure the future of wildlife through their education presentations. Virtual presentations on Zoom are also available. During the presentation, you will hear the story of Trouper, watch as he grasps fingers and shakes hands with guests, learn about his fascination with music and hear about many other cool raccoon facts.

There is a tax-deductible donation requested to help support Trouper and Dot and their mission. Educational appearances start at $100 and last about an hour. If traveling outside of the limits of Fort Myers, there is an additional $50 travel fee to cover expenses.
