For a organization that claims to be about teaching kids about wildlife the “donation” that is required for a 30-45 min walk around the center is exorbitant. I can take my kids to the San Francisco Zoo for the whole day for the same price....More

If you love animals please stop by here and consider adopting one. They all need loving homes to go home to! You can tell these animals are well cared for by the staff that works here. They truly love their job and love the animals.

On several occasions, this facility has given advice and/or taken in an animal for whom we had no resources for care. They are compassionate, kind, and committed to taking care of these helpless creatures. We love them.

First of all, don't go expecting a traditional "zoo" experience. This is a place that rehabilitates sick, injured and orphaned wildlife. They (rightfully) don't take visitors in to see animals that they are working to re-release. The tours are Saturdays at 2pm (I believe they...More
