I've been to a few of their programs and find them very educational and entertaining. the variety of animals they bring is wonderful and the handlers are very professional while remaining friendly and interactive with the crowd.

WOWEE is a great organization that really teaches people about wildlife. When I first started volunteering with WOWEE I didn't realize how much I would fall in love with the animals and helping people learn about them

When I started with WOWEE I wasn't sure how it was going to be. I did a show at one of the city schools and that is when I was totally convinced that I wanted to be part of this organization. The looks on the kids faces was all I needed to see. The curiosity the kids had and the fun we had was unexplainable. This group is like a family and we go not only to educate but also to let them enjoy well learning.

I am a volunteer\board member with WOWEE. My first experience with them was to see a program they did locally with some of their exotic animals. They were extremely knowledgeable and helped to draw in the crowds attention. I spoke with them afterwards and ended up becoming a volunteer and now, about 5 years later, i am also a board member. We strive to help educate the future in a fun way that is truely unforgettable. The faces of children in these schools make it worth while. They are amazed at what they see and learn in a way that is not easily forgotten. I LOVE WOWEE! Amazing organization, does a lot for the small size of the organization.

Wowee Wildlife has brought their animals and volunteers to our PTA events for years now. Their volunteers are amazing with the 4-8 year olds that come to our event. Their knowledge and ability to answer questions, no matter how out of this word they are, is outstanding! The kids ask every year if they are coming back. They exceed our expectations every time. They work with our needs for our events every time. They will be back as much as we can.
