Originally founded in 2004, our organization early-on focused mostly on community education (especially in-school curriculum enrichment) based around live-animal presentations: our Wildlife Encounters® shows! Programs and classes delivered by highly skilled& passionate educators and presenters (see profiles below) feature a wide variety of non-releasable wildlife that live with us because they were:

-Injured in the wild and not able to survive independently

-Axploited by the illegal trade in wildlife and placed with us by authorities

 -Abandoned, abused, neglected or otherwise surrendered former pets

 -Captive-bred in a US-based protected environment to participate in public education & species/biodiversity conservation efforts.
