Who Are Our Animal Ambassadors?
Most of the animals exhibited at the Nature Center are here because they are unable to survive in the wild. Some are domesticated animals that were surrendered by their previous owners, others are injured wild animals that are now unable to hunt or escape from predators.
The cost of caring for wildlife and adopted animals is considerable. All of the animals at the Nature Center need specialized diets, daily care, and creature comforts. You can help to provide food, health care, and housing for the animals—for your favorite feathered, scaly or furry species— through Sponsor a Species.
