Educational tour: this is a walking tour of the wildhaven ranch. Animals permitted by usda,dept of fish and wildlife, and the california dept of fish and game are shown to the public. The tour shows birds of prey and mammals including bobcat, deer, raccoons, coyotes and black bears. Each animal is explained and the public learns each animal's part in the ecology of southern california forests. The unique features of each animal are explained. During the walking tour the guide also points out the value of the native plants and how the lives of each animal are affected by the plants. Visitors also learn how to comply with applicable laws as they encounter animals in the wild or even their own yards.

rehabilitation: wildhaven ranch has rehabilited thousands of injured and orphaned wildlife and successfully returned them into the wild. These are animals which would have died without wildhaven's care. They could have been hit by cars, taken up unwelcome residence in a home, come into a back yard looking for food, or perhaps frightened or startled a resident. Some wildlife questions can be quickly resolved over the telephone. Most require the animal being brought to wildhaven's triage facility where it is examined and usually treated for shock. Fluids are often administered, veterinarian examination is done if called for, and appropriate treatment, food, and housing is provided. Thorough records are kept to assist the animal care, and to point out trends in the problems encountered in the animals treated at wildhaven ranch.

public education: wildhave produces many informative pieces. The "bears with us" program educates visitors how to co-habitate with bears. Shows are done at wildlife stores, hotels, shopping centers and various other venues to explain the diverse ecosystem of southern california. Wildhaven has also been involved in several television and web-based programs that offer wildlife education.

Rating: 5 stars  

I believe in Wildhaven Ranch. I like their educational programs that teach the public about the wildlife and ecosystem. Families of all ages can benefit and learn so much from Wildhaven Ranch. Learning about our wildlife and natural resources is the best thing anyone and any organization can offer to our community.
