Please note: Wildlife Encounters is not a zoo. Though the owner and some staff are professional members of various zoological, wildlife and conservation entities and many have degrees in biology, ecology, sustainable agriculture, conservation and more!
We are Professional Educators and Public Speakers first!
- Our “FUN TEACHERS WITH A TWIST” will fascinate you with how they work WITH the animals and their ability to thrill, engage and communicate with diverse ages, learning abilities – and how they adapt to different venues and special needs. Our reviews, testimonials and references say it all!
- Wildlife Encounters® presentations and exhibits educate youth and the public on a wide variety of environmental, animal and personal health & wellness topics, while making a very personal and intimate connection with the “face of nature”!
- Though we participate in and support the wildlife rehabilitation & release community, our Teaching Animals are all non-releasable wildlife either because of injury, legal situations, or they were not born in the wild.
*Wildlife Encounters’ facility and our operations are regulated by and compliant with the Animal Welfare Act: Class C Exhibitor # 12-C-0051
