Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Education, Graduate & Professional Schools

Mission: To serve as an educational resource for all ages by providing exposure to wild animals and the body of knowledge generated for their conservation; to advance understanding of wild animal biology through long-term, humane scientific studies on captive populations, thus contributing to technical training for wildlife agencies, educational institutions and conservation agencies.

Programs: Education: the wildlife science center provided programs for over 12,000 visitors. Programs are provided for the general public, non-school organizations and school groups ages pre-k through 12 and post secondary. Every wildlife science center education program is aligned with national and state science standards, but the focus of presentation does not involve science. The subject of wolves and wildlife lends itself to discussions of history, culture, mathematics, literature, art, and other topics. Close-up observation of our wildlife affords unique learning oppotunities from color and size variation to a more in-depth look at adaptations, behaviors, management and conservation. Training: wildlife science center continued a long tradition of providing hands-on training to wild life professionals and students using our real wolves and bears. Research: biologists have spent time researching animals in natural habitat in order to maintain healthy wolf and bear populations.

There have been countless times I have heard squeals of delight from visiting high school students. Other times, I have witnessed the subdued awe of young adults seeing rare behavior. The gasp of amazement when a raptor decides to look at an individual taking a photo. I have watched adults and children alike transfixed on a pack of wolves eating natural foods. I have been part of the presentations the staff gives. Tell me what you remember of your high school science courses, because honestly all I can remember is hours of tedious note taking, not the subject. The Wildlife Science Center is so much more than the animals that call it home. The education they bring to people from all walks of life and ages is important to the roles of humans within the environment.
