Wildlife Ambassadors was created in 1996 to fill a need in the community. Our ambassadors allow children and adults to get up close and personal with animals from around the world as well as many from our very own backyards. We have educated thousands of people over the years at schools, libraries, fairs, festivals, scout and church events and so much more. In addition to education, Wildlife Ambassadors provides a permanent home for exotics, farm animals and native non-releasable wildlife. Our ambassadors have come from wildlife rehabilitators and centers, animal shelters, individual owners and even a restaurant! They are equally important and help us spread the word about conservation and respect for nature.
