Need Wildlife Assistance?

Do you know what to do if you find a young wild animal?  Many times, rescuers think an animal is orphaned, when the young bird or mammal is still receiving care from an unseen parent. Sometimes these animals don't need any "help" from us at all!

Online Wildlife Book Club

Every other month, the Wildlife Center hosts an online book club on the Critter Cam moderated discussion. Join us for our next meeting, on Monday, June 5, as we discuss "The Soul of an Octopus: A Surprising Exploration into the Wonder of Consciousness" by Sy Montgomery. 

Eagle Tracking

The Wildlife Center is currently tracking the post-release movements of eight eagles.  See where the eagles are now!
