Part wildlife rescue center, part educational facility, this very family-friendly enterprise practices what it preaches in terms of environmental awareness—it was even built from recycled materials. Staff provide care for unwanted exotic animals, many of which have either been donated by the public or confiscated by governmental agencies. Families are welcome to pet an alligator or stroke a snake as they learn about endangered species, environmental concerns and how kids can make a change. A number of other exhibits add further context; call or check online for details of special events.

perfect for young kids- their team does a fantastic job of teaching visitors how to take care of animals and the importance of naturalists. my daughter still remembers learning about how attached birds may get to their owners and considering things such as that before adopting a new pet. thank you for teaching our kids so many valuable things.
